 No chance for army takeover in Ukraine - Head of Special Operations Department of the General Staff

The military takeover in Ukraine, provocatively predicted by some politicians, is impossible because the army itself has become people’s one and the soldiers’ consciousness level is quite high to comprehend the harmfulness of destabilization of the situation in Ukraine.

Head of Special Operations Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Colonel Serhii Kryvonos declared during the round table dedicated to "insurrection as an instrument of a non-conventional war: the history of use, threats, and challenges of Ukraine's present," Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"Our people have rather high conscious level. And no one will resort to destabilization of the situation in our country. Everyone understands that the enemy must be stopped, it is necessary to solve the problem in the east, and the swinging of the state from the inside only plays into the hands of the Russian special services," he said.

In addition, the colonel said that the current Armed Forces of Ukraine have become entirely people's being replenished by the representatives of almost all social strata over the past year during the mobilization: "Now the army is purely people's as most members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who were drafted to the military service, represent the people - the nation whose members abandoned their business, abandoned their farmsteads and volunteered to defend their homeland and independence."
