Military and political leadership is not capable of concealing the fact of moral decay of AFU soldiers and officers resulting in a violation of military discipline.
Ukrainian officials openly state total alcoholism in the ranks of the AFU on TV.
The Central Military Procurator of Ukraine Matios made a statement on problems with alcohol among AFU top-ranking officers on the next day after large-scale fire at the ammunition depot near Vinnitsa on the air.
Besides, he stated during the briefing in Odessa that in one of the AFU units at the depot of Tochka-U long-range missiles, the military Prosecutor’s office and police detained two top-ranking officers in a drunken state.
Along with hard drinking, weapons sell keeps going on in the AFU both among command and soldiers.
In the vicinity of the locality of Malinovka there was detained a serviceman of the 92nd separate brigade of the AFU, common soldier Pogonko I.V. moving towards Kharkov. The soldier tried to take the Barret sniper-rifle out of the so-called “ATO” zone, 64 bullets of 12,7mm caliber and a grenade RGD-5 aimed at selling. It should be noted that there were registered a lot of facts of selling weapons and ammunition by AFU servicemen.
The Ukrainian army becomes more dangerous, not like military force acting in state interests but rather like a criminal syndicate being a threat to civilians nationwide scale.
