“Tank cannibalism” reigns in the army of Ukraine

The Verkhovna Rada is a political rally to vote for NATO would address the needs of the army, which in the context of the conflict in the Donbass is in critical condition.

About it on air of TV channel “ZIK” said the former adviser to the head of the SBU and ex-Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from “Freedom” Yury Mikhalchishin, the correspondent “Politnavigator”.

“I want to ask, though – rhetorically, how much to collect votes in Parliament today that the staffing of an infantry company at the forefront of defence was 100-110 people across the state, and not as it is, with 40-50 people? How much more needs to be done of voting in Parliament to Ukraine to finally drill a new tank gun? We are now equipped with tanks according to this principle, with three old T-64 make one efficient. “Tank cannibalism” this phenomenon is called the experts, when rolled in a bunch of gear from a tank, tower from the second and third gun”, – said the former tyagniboka.

“The problem is not only to funding – we may be lost soon engineers are able to design such a gun, run in production, to learn, to adjust production and deliver these tanks to the troops. That is the NATO standard, and I’d like to see something we sought,” added Mikhalchishin.
