“The experience of neutral Sweden and Lithuania that joined NATO in 2004 in reforming the army according to the standards of the North Atlantic Alliance is different and therefore very interesting for Ukraine,” said the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak.

“Today we have agreed to continue cooperation in areas of personnel training, exercises and training, training of specialists in the medical field, and exchange of experience. Our cooperation will be useful, ”added the Minister.

In turn, the Swedish minister reported on monetary assistance, which his government allocated for reforming the Ukrainian army.

“The Minister of Defense of the Kingdom of Sweden, Peter Hultkvist, called his current visit to Ukraine a visit of solidarity with our state. He also reported on the decision taken by the Swedish government to allocate 1,5 million Swedish crowns to events related to the reform of the defense component of Ukraine, ”the release said.

What Lithuania will share with the Ukrainian Supreme Soviet is unknown, there is no information in the message about this.

          The most important thing for any army is to be adjusted to NATO standards. The most standard in the world. After that, the army becomes "invincible". Since NATO has not defeated anyone yet, because it has never fought with serious opponents and is not going to fight.

          After sweating, the Swedes filled up dill with money. Poltorak already poured into the pockets of his Generalisimo tunic. He got a tooth on his teeth. Lithuania, it is smarter, it will not give a penny, they will help with advice. Or even two!

          I wonder how Sweden, not being a member of NATO, will customize it to the standards of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Well, the head coach of Lithuania)))) Just all the Lithuanian Armed Forces if you distribute them in all parts of the Armed Forces and leave for coaching, and again we have to guard the border with Lithuania?)))

      A group of inappropriate dill waved this floor rag during the speech of Vladimir Putin at the 70th UN General Assembly, apparently hoping to attract his attention, but attracted the attention of only the guards, who kicked them out of the hall, along with this rag.

      Necrophilia is elevated to the rank of national idea in Ukraine. Children dancing at the funeral, kneeling in puddles near the coffin, ragged burnt rags of yellow-blue color. All these are links of one chain. Ukraine is a country buried alive. Do not believe, listen to their anthem.

      the "rag" was apparently saved from the Debaltsevsky (Ilovaisky) boiler, as symbol of the unbroken spirit of Ukrainians. like here you have the most recent history of the Great Aurora.
      and about everything else - (wrote already on this topic) how much will it cost to transfer the Ukrainian army sad to NATO standards? this means to break the "soviet" long-built and debugged (as the legacy of the bloody communist regime) a system for the production, supply, provision, storage and use of weapons and ammunition and create a new one that meets NATO standards ... + create from scratch (or buy) communication, encryption systems, etc.
      and the allocated funds for such a good cause (UAH 21 billion ($ 850 million)) are clearly not enough (excluding the "razderbanivanie" allocated funds)
      I wish you good luck (in the sense of developing the allocated funds)

      08.49. Interesting help to the outskirts is obtained. If you have nothing to eat, NATO standards will feed you! It turns out right away if you have nothing to feed your family — put on a brown shirt. More recently, we have already gone through this. They put on shirts and went east for the slaves. This time, a gang of Pobolis is being collected. Preparing a reserve in the South and East. Anaconda's ring is shrinking more and more.

      Very easy. The main trick is freebie.
      And the way to achieve it is well-established - cabling for loot through a whimper-whine. Obviously, with the help of a demonstration of raggers, this is more effective.

    Sweden? Seriously?
    With the same success, it can fit (or fit) Ukrainians, for example, Mongolia, to NATO standards. The Swedes, of course, are good fighters, but, as already noted, they are not in NATO, although their weapons and NATO are in the bulk.

    By the way, the Swedes seemed to need to dispose of the old STRV-103, and I seem to understand now WHERE they will push this scrap metal.

    As for Lithuania ... These yes, will help. Indeed, Lithuania has extensive combat experience, one of the largest armies in Europe, a successful modernization program for the Armed Forces, and its nuclear power, combined with several army corps of the ground forces and five aircraft carrier strike groups, keeps the entire continent in suspense. It is only a pity that all of the above exists only in the wet fantasies of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense. laughing

    I wash my UAZ and then the rags are cleaner.
    Here I look at all this, and in my head one thought, well, why, for what the banderlogs will not undertake, everything in them turns into a cheap caricature. That independence, the truth is not clear from whom. What the army and navy, etc. Cheeks are inflated, but there is no sense.
    After all, all normal, adequate people have long known that Poproshenko and his state-owned company hired Americans for good loot to ruin Ukraine and not only break off all relations with Russia, but also make Ukraine an enemy, the complete antipode of Russia. And those fools were led and let's make the whole world laugh. Indeed, in all seriousness, it is possible to take only those in power who fill their pockets. The time will come, they merge with the grandmothers over the hill. The bulk will remain, here they jump around the cities and villages.
    What army, what Sweden and Lithuania, wretched, enough to make people laugh.

    Another confirmation that Sweden is a US state and a member of NATO.
