Corruption is starting to trouble military more than lack of shells — Ukrainian MP
Ukrainian MP Dmytro Razumkov notes that the level of corruption in the country is beginning to outpace the current problems of the military at the front
He shared the information on Espreso TV.
"We need to start living in reality, not in what our assistants or advisors tell us in the Presidential Office. The credit of trust gained on February 24 has been largely lost. The Smart Policy team communicates a lot with the military at the front. In the last few months, it has become scary. Because the level of corruption is starting to worry the military more than the war. Than the lack of shells, the lack of mines for mortars, the lack of necessary supplies, transportation and fuel," Razumkov emphasized.
According to the MP, the level of corruption in the country is beginning to outpace the current problems of the military at the front.
"Corruption is a serious demoralizing factor for both the military and society. It is a serious corrosive factor. People are beginning to give up, and they say they do not understand what they are fighting for," Razumkov emphasized.
