We need to train people, they will get weapons - Ukrainian military officer on mobilization
Ukrainian Armed Forces officer Nazariy Kishak is convinced that the Defense Forces will not have any problems in providing weapons to their personnel
He expressed this opinion on the Espreso TV channel
"Today, the main task for the Defense Forces is to train people. I am convinced that there will be weapons. I trust our command and know that there will be no problems with this. We will also have enough weapons for training. Each training centre of the Defense Forces is fully equipped with everything they need," Kishak explained.
The officer noted that funding for the army is also very important, and the country needs an efficiently functioning economy to defeat Russia.
"However, everyone cannot really fight. We need an efficient economy for war. Often civilians say that we need to go to Bukovel ski resort, and we can gather entire units there. However, thanks to the work of Bukovel, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are very well funded, from FPV drones to transport and equipment. So before saying anything, we need to weigh up all the conditions. Yes, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do need to be replenished, but we need to find a balance and be able to finance the country's military needs," he added.
