Ukraine today has army that can defend our state - Groysman

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman believes that today Ukraine has an army that can not only defend the independence of our state but also the values of the civilized world.

He stated this during the celebrations on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We can say today that we have an army that is able to defend our country and values inherent in any civilized society," Groysman said.

He emphasized that now the Ukrainian soldiers defend the borders of Ukraine, as well as of modern Europe.

The Prime Minister noted that over the past few years the funding of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has significantly increased, however, in his words, this is still "not enough to give proper respect to the Ukrainian army."

In this regard, the Head of Government noted that the task of the authorities is to provide the soldiers with worthy wages, modern weapons and all that is necessary for effective fight.
