"This is the first time I tell about it, here in this auditorium. In 2012, the electronic database of recruits of the Ukrainian enlistment offices was destroyed by order of the Minister of Defense. With no explanation, nothing," he said.
"Only papers were left, which they tried to burn," the president added.
According to him, the destruction of these databases was a part of the plan for the destruction of Ukraine, which consisted of three parts: a military attack (in the conditions of virtual absence of the army and a large number of SBU employees recruited by the FSB), the economic component (they were counting on termination of payments of salaries and pensions, termination of funding of public institutions, bankruptcy of Ukraine and internal uprising) and political (the collapse of Ukraine in case of any attempt to declare any kind of elections).
Poroshenko also noted that thanks to the people of Ukraine this plan has not been realized.
