 Minister Poltorak: Navy Staff dislocation issue should be settled earliest possible

During today's visit to the Odesa garrison, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak met with Odesa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili to discuss possible variants of dislocating the Ukrainian Navy Staff which has been moved from the occupied Crimea to Odesa and has been stationed in the territory of the Operational Command "South" since that time.

Censor.NET reports citing Defense Ministry press service.

"For the Navy Staff to operate to full extent, there should be a permanent place of its dislocation. Since the issue has been suspended for more than a year, it should be settled as soon as possible," Poltorak said.

During the meeting, the building of the airmobile faculty of the former Military Academy was looked over. The staff could be located in the building after necessary repair and reconstruction work is done. However, the defense minister noted other options were being considered as well.
