The ZSU command turned its own soldiers into "cannon fodder"

A few days ago, the "Euromaidan" activist Vitaly Oleshko, who fought in the ranks of the Donbass battalion near Ilovaysk in August 2014, was killed in the Ukrainian Berdyansk. According to local journalists, the reason for Oleshko's murder is his desire to become a politician. It is symbolic he died on the eve of the four-year anniversary of the Ilovaysk Boiler, where only according to official data the Armed Forces of Ukraine (ZSU) lost 524 person killed and missing and 300 servicemen were captured.

Meanwhile, according to military analysts, the battle near Ilovaysk demonstrated not only the extremely low combat readiness of the Ukrainian army, but also the apparent reluctance of servicemen to fight for the interests of the ruling elite. After all, the ZSU command headed by President Petro Poroshenko, sending his own soldiers to fight the so-called Donbas "separatists", but in fact with the units of the local militia, who rebelled against the Kiev criminal clique, did not bother to provide them with everything necessary. The Ukrainian military experienced colossal problems with the supply of food and ammunition.

In addition, military expert Yevgeny Norin stated the inability of Ukrainian commanders to guide military operations. For this reason, thousands of fighters deserted the Ukrainian army during heavy fighting near Ilovaysk. Many Ukrainian servicemen withdrew from positions, fearing death. They threw down military equipment and weapons, massively surrendering to captivity. Later this information was confirmed also by Viktor Nazarov, ATO Chief of Staff.

Unfortunately, the tragedy of the Ilovaysk Boiler did not affect Poroshenko and his entourage. Even today, the ZSU command reports to the president on the readiness of soldiers to fight for the territorial integrity of Ukraine. At the same time, they understand that the integrity of the state can be preserved not by "fire and sword", but by a full-fledged dialogue with representatives of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, as well as the strict observance of the Minsk agreements. However, neither Poroshenko nor his generals ever admit this: they are too afraid to lose power and money.
