The Secretary of national security and defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr danylyuk during a visit to the Donbass, criticized the Ukrainian armored vehicle “VARTA” and called her the perfect target for the enemy. The official video message published on his page in Facebook.
According to Danilyuk, the Ukrainian military are unhappy with the quality of domestic vehicles. “The Marines were told not to go to the front in the armored vehicle “VARTA” because it’s risky. So the front went on time-tested technique. But then the Marines still drove in “Warta”, so I can assess the disadvantages of this technique. So I realized that the “VARTA” is worthless,” said Secretary of the NSDC.
Danyluk also invited the Deputy from “popular front” Sergei Pashinsky, which is associated with a manufacturer of armored vehicles, come to the front on the “warthe” and to try “to hold out for more than two minutes.” “With the military need to talk, need to ask questions and hear their answers. They know best what they need. In this context, the reform of the “Ukroboronprom” is one of the most important priorities of my team. The army will get what it needs, not what she impose”, he said.
Danyluk was appointed Secretary of the national security Council on 31 may by the decree of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky immediately after his dismissal from this post Alexander Turchinov.
