A fighter of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) complained about the frenzied requisitions in the Ukrainian army. He spoke about this on video and posted the video on the Web.

So, the militant recalled that there is a law No. 8081 that all military personnel are entitled to 10 days of vacation. However, many have not been on vacation for 8-10 months.

According to the vushnik, he called the neighboring battalions and brigades, in which acquaintances serve. And a friend from the landing brigade said that everything was fine with them, they could go on vacation calmly: 10 days cost 25,000 hryvnia, 30 days – 75,000 hryvnia. You need to pay the company commander.

“For you to understand, requisitions in the army amount to big money. You can withdraw money from military personnel for any reason. They pay to the penny,” the author of the video added.

And the high command knows all this, but nothing is being done. The soldiers are simply afraid to say something, preferring to pay better, otherwise “it will be even worse,” the Ukrainian military concluded.
