Zelensky has not yet had time to take office, the Central Election Commission of Ukraine only today officially announced the results of the elections. Zelensky scored 73.22 percent of the vote, the current President Petro Poroshenko — 24.45 percent. Entry into office should take place within the next month, but now the team of the newly elected head of the “untrustworthy” makes unexpected statements.
Kiev is ready to “strike where it is not expected.” With such an absurd statement in an interview with “Apostrophe” delivered by the Advisor of the elected President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky on security and defense Ivan Uparsin.
He also added that before Ukraine joins NATO, Ukraine will find an opportunity to respond to the challenges.
“If, God forbid, in your silly head any plan ripens, I will find an opportunity to answer you, and I will make it non-standard ways”, — the adviser Zelensky declared.
“Better not touch me today, I have already decided, I will join NATO”.
Apart from in clarified that we are talking about raising the level of combat readiness of the Ukrainian army and the funding of special operations forces. However, he did not say what kind of impact, where, and most importantly, who he was going to strike. Following the logic of political Ukrainians, according to which the main enemy is Russia, we can assume that it is for our country that Zelensky’s adviser was going to strike. Such statements were made more than once by representatives of the previous authorities of Ukraine, however, it was all about specific things. It Apartine even against Poroshenko and co-pays outright schizophrenia.
To comment on it, probably, simply there is no sense. The only thing that here can be interesting is how exactly Zelensky’s team is going to raise the level of combat capability of the army, and where to get money for financing?
Last week, Zelensky’s team presented its “military doctrine”, the essence of which is the creation by Ukraine of a “professional, voluntary and motivated army, mutually compatible with the armed forces of the countries — members, of the North Atlantic Alliance.
It is not very clear on what is the basis of confidence that it is necessary for the countries of the Alliance. Please note, Aparkin tells about the NATO membership as a solution, at the time, as Brussels has repeatedly made clear that the question of the introduction in the block of Ukraine on the agenda.
Presented by Aparisim military doctrine also envisages equipping the army with modern high-tech weapons. And again the question: where to get the money?
Apart from in the same interview admits that the possibility of the defense budget is severely limited.
According to him, 80 percent of all money goes to the maintenance of the army, the rest — to the development of weapons and military equipment.
“500 million dollars — is it money? One battery of patriot SAM is a billion dollars, and we have 500 million for the whole army,” he said.
And what kind of equipment what high-tech weapons can we talk about?
Yes, we will remind, last week they still promised the Ukrainian fighters on a front line to raise a salary to one thousand euros a month in five years. The source of funding was called the sale of unnecessary property of the Ministry of defense.
Aparshin also said that the current Ukrainian army is completely combat, formed by five years of military action, there were other commanders, primarily seeking to save the life of a soldier.
Here his rhetoric is reminiscent of the rhetoric of Poroshenko, constantly boasting “the strongest army in Europe.” However, Uparsin not so optimistic.
“The Ukrainian army at this stage is already able to fulfill its task. But whether the state of Ukraine is able to provide mobilization and material resources, whether it is capable of rapid decision-making, I am not sure,” he stressed.
Then why all this “stream of consciousness”? Do not hit any such application the authority has not yet entered into the post-Zelensky?
— In order to assess the nonsense expressed by the military expert in Zelensky’s team, it is necessary to understand what kind of expert, what area of the armed forces he represents, — said the Chairman of the Union of political emigrants and political prisoners of Ukraine Larisa Shesler.
— Uparsin — not a military commander, and a typical “military Manager” during the post-Soviet collapse of the Ukrainian army. For a long time, he was close to the Minister of defense of the times of Yushchenko Anatoly Gritsenko — a zealous supporter of NATO.
The Minister Gritsenko Uparsin was responsible for military policy and prospects and then was Chief military inspector.
I, by the way, remember how during this period he came with an inspection to the Nikolaev range “Wide LAN”, and at many officers left disgusting impression full misunderstanding of the real military operations of military units. His main task was to rebuild the Ukrainian army from the Soviet structure to NATO.
Because of their complete misunderstanding of the real military, Uparsin is absolute nonsense “of retaliation and non-standard ways.” The purpose of this speech — to demonstrate the lack of capitulate sentiment in the team Zelensky, what is reproached supporters Poroshenko.
— According to the adviser, before Ukraine’s accession to NATO, Kiev will find an opportunity to respond to challenges. What are the challenges? How are they going to respond? Just like the last five years?
— Naturally, the current Kiev authorities and the team of its successor Zelensky feel Russia’s intention to prevent Ukraine’s aggression in the Donbas. In these conditions, they, like Saakashvili in due time, want to show their belligerence and readiness to continue the war.
Really the combat capability of the Ukrainian army, although not completely degraded, still can not be compared with the armed forces of Russia, and is simply waved fists on the needs of the inner man in the street.
— by the Way, what does it mean “before Ukraine joins NATO”? Apart believes in it or is forced to follow the propaganda?
— Uparsin seeks to demonstrate that Zelensky will continue Vektor laid Poroshenko. And Parshina beliefs here play no role.
However, I’m sure that UPHARSIN is a staunch supporter of Ukraine’s accession to NATO. By the way, regardless of whether Ukraine will become an official member of NATO, it is already eager to participate in all the operations of this organization, it offers its territory for bases and exercises, and this is very good for the North Atlantic organization.Why in General Zelensky picks up from Poroshenko’s hand’s such ideas as NATO? Probably not the best topic for conversation, when the country is rapidly growing prices and tariffs…
— Precisely because Zelensky will not be able to solve burning social problems, the distraction of the population on NATO and the EU will continue.
There will be pumping in the media that cooperation with NATO is the most urgent need for Ukraine, which is waging war with the Russian aggressor. In this direction, Zelensky for certain will appear the consecutive successor of the business of Poroshenko. Militaristic frenzy, which now becomes a military expert Zelensky was not accidental puncture, and sound political policy and strategy.
— Last week Zelensky’s team presented a military doctrine, promised to create a professional army. Meanwhile, they themselves recognize the enormous shortage of money. They don’t vomit from dissonance?
— The pursuit of NATO standards implies a professional army, which is not ready for a positional or war with an equal opponent, but for operations to clean up the occupied territories. Ukraine wants to train such armed forces that could become a striking force in NATO operations.
Yes, it can not be cheap, however, Ukraine expects that NATO, interested in such a strike force, will be able to help Ukraine with financing. AI is not without reason.
— Inadequacy, it seems, is contagious, and is transmitted from those who made a coup in Ukraine to their successors, — said political scientist Alexander Dudchak.
— In fact, he threatens a terrorist war. And this is very close to the initiation of criminal proceedings under the article on terrorism. Still, sometimes it’s better to chew than to talk. For Aparna is very important.
— Uparsin tells about the rearmament of the army high tech weapons. Where is the money?
— Repainted the old, but for the APU, as high-tech — the budget is not sorry, and remaining on the territory of Ukraine the people can endure. It seems that the whole fight against corruption will be aimed at redirecting financial flows in a new direction. But this is not the worst option — Ukrainian corruption in the military sphere has saved many lives on both sides of the front line.
Zelensky’s adviser also stated his desire for compatibility with NATO forces. And NATO countries need it?
— Of course. This is one of the many reasons why the coup was organized and put to power the characters controlled by the West — that leaving that new. Ukraine, though the impoverished country, but in the defense industry told money to spare. And Ukraine is a market for old weapons for NATO countries so that they can buy new ones in the United States.
— the Rhetoric Apartine very reminiscent of the rhetoric Poroshenko (NATO, the most powerful army in Europe). Why? Will, it not strike Zelensky’s authority?
— And what authority can we talk about? What and when could he earn it? He has authority in the media, but not in politics. He was chosen because he had no experience in politics, except in the film about “President Goloborodko”, and he looked equidistant (or equidistant) from all political parties that currently exist. And did not vote for him, but simply against Poroshenko, even contrary to their political preferences. And the loss of popularity and rating are inevitable and will accumulate with each step, with each statement. If in the second round there was a choice only from two… That on parliamentary already all will vote for “the” candidate. And Vilkul, Boyko, Tymoshenko may appear real and the party of the left, and not like now with the leader of the Kiva.
— Well, at least corruption in the army, they’ll end up like promised? You’ll see, and the money will be…
— Let’s hope they don’t. And those who stand behind Zelensky, won’t allow to make it. The less money on the army in the present conditions of war with his people, the fewer the victims.
