Appeal of the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the soldiers and officers of Ukraine



Soldiers and officers of the Ukrainian army! In this difficult time for our people, I consider it necessary to say words of support to everyone who wears shoulder straps, and who today faced a difficult choice.

Now, as you know, I was deprived of the opportunity to give orders, despite the fact that my appointment as Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was made by the legitimate President of Ukraine, when his legitimacy had not been challenged by anyone. But I always have the moral right to express my assessment of the situation.

I am sure that whoever is today presiding over the President of Ukraine, without obtaining a popular mandate in a general election, he does not have the right to order the use of armed forces.

The question of the future of Crimea, as well as the right of residents of Donetsk, Kharkov, Lugansk, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Nikolaev, Kherson and other cities of Ukraine to freely express their vision of the future of our country, should be decided only at the negotiating table between politicians, but in no way case not using weapons.

I hope and I am sure that none of the citizens of Ukraine wants us to repeat the Yugoslav scenario. And any attempts to involve the Armed Forces of Ukraine in an armed conflict look like a crime. We have shown resilience during the Maidan, we need to show it now.

The Ukrainian soldier, heir to the glory of the Zaporozhian Cossacks and the great liberating army that broke the back of Nazism, has no need to prove his resilience and courage. And today, the endurance of the Ukrainian military admires the whole world, balancing on the verge of a global catastrophe. Remember that not only the future of your family, nation and country, but also the entire planet depends on you.

Remember that the price of ill-considered actions will be the collapse of our people's hopes for a peaceful life. Keep cool and restraint, do not make a tragic mistake that will not be fixed. Do not shoot at our Russian brothers, under any circumstances, do not open fire to kill, unless it is a question of saving your life. And in any situation, stay people.

Admiral Y.Ilyin, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

      A sober-minded admiral soberly assessing the situation, he would also urge the armed forces to oppose the unconstitutional Nazi Bandera forces that committed the coup and take power into the hands of the military.
      In conditions of chaos, a coup d'etat committed by the Nazis, the Army not only must, but also is obliged to take power into its own hands in order to save the state it serves.
      It is a pity that the military leadership of the USSR did not understand this, and even now they do not understand it in Ukraine.

        The army needed to act in February and not now, they would show firmness and there wouldn’t be a coup d'etat and the situation would not be so bad now.

      A person simply understands that the fate of the whole world depends on the Ukrainian army. This match can ignite the third world. And everyone with a shot head can see everything, because there are no brains, they can stir up a third one. Although, however, during the first shot towards the Crimea, it is necessary to destroy the US economy and spread rot in the future on all fronts on all fronts, but this is real. It’s time for the State Department to understand that Putin is not offended - he just takes and severely punishes. Enough to endure these parasites.

    well done! but why were these words not supported by action? after all, senior officers of the General Staff of VSU turned to Yanukovych to finally restore order in the country. why did the military back down? they had an army, had power! what now to say, albeit correct, but essentially useless words !? Now the parade is commanded by people with disabilities on their heads, they do not care about the people, about possible victims!

    Worthy officers will still have their say in Ukraine. And, I hope, these will be the words of truth - Ukraine should remain Slavic, Western values, morality and standards only destroy our spiritual essence, lead to the disunity of our peoples, and hinder the achievement of great achievements !!!

    that's just from the Ukrainian side there are no politicians, there is no one to discuss with ...
    therefore, Crimea did not wait.

    otherwise completely agree with him!

    Officer and son of his people !! The army must remember that the liberals in the government will deal with it in the same way as with the Golden Eagle! They do not need an army; they need supplies to achieve their goals and deflection before the owners.

    Here's how, but this very Nazism appeared in Ukraine and where is this "legacy"? Why didn't they break the ridge again? Would be silent too, "heirs".

    ... the heirs of the glory of the Zaporozhye Cossacks and the great liberating army could take over and easily break the ridge of the nascent homegrown Nazism. Egypt example.

    As they say late to drink Borjomi. I am amazed at the statements of many military men (in my opinion, rather cowards) when they say: The army is outside politics, what kind of nonsense is this? army that does not consist of citizens of the state? Moreover, when an armed coup occurs in the state, the army is on the sidelines, while it is simply obliged to stand up for the people and the constitution. Where was the Ukrainian army? sat and looked at the mess. Yes, Yanukovych snickered, but he is corrupt, has lost the confidence of the people. In this case, the army simply had to stand up for the people and the constitution. But in the Ukrainian army there were no officers of honor, officers of conscience, like rabbits, they burrowed into minks and sat there when the Nazis marched in Kiev, when they overthrew power (not only Yanukovych), when they killed people (not only Berkutov). Here is such a valiant army of Ukraine, now suddenly remembered that they were in their pants. Remember what? they turned against the people, they sided with the Nazis, this is such a valiant army of Ukraine today.

      The Ukrainian army is not an army. They must fight against the new "power". In theory, they should not follow orders either. If this is a revolution, as Kiev insists, then it is a new subject, a new state. The army has not yet been sworn in !!! Normal generals were supposed to send three letters of the maydanuts, and not concentrate their troops in the South-East of Ukraine.

    Why are the top management of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - only naval officers. Ilyin, Tenyuh. Now-the fleet commander of the ARC Berezovsky.

    World history is replete with examples when the highest military ranks of states took responsibility for events within the country and put things in order.
    I expected a similar thing to happen in Ukraine.
    The admiral, with his appeal, is trying to reduce the scale of the consequences, but could eliminate the cause in a timely manner.

    Of course, in any state, in the course of any "coups", the army must seize power and "wait" for general elections. But for some reason this "rule" is never and nowhere observed. And it would not hurt !.
