The student said that it might be a good idea to train not only military psychologists, but also military historians. The latter, the student said, help influencing both the military and the people. The historian-to-be asked the president of his opinion on the matter.
"I suggest you go to a military draft office after you graduate and spend a year in ATO. I was in the Soviet army for two years and participated in combat activities. I was drafted after my second year in college. After two years [in the army - ed.] I returned to my third year [in college - ed.]. ... I can state that the view of life changes drastically after the service in the army. It's just getting different and forms a person," the president said.
Poroshenko noted the Armed Forces of Ukraine had a need in military psychologists.
