President Petro Poroshenko said while introducing new head of the Kyiv Regional State Administration Oleksandr Horhan, Censor.NET reports citing LІGA.net.
"During two and a half years, we have managed to create one of the most effective armies in the continent," he said.
The head of state noted that the previous government destroyed the independence of Ukraine by dismantling its army.
"We had to face Russia's aggression without an army, without hardware, and stopped it only due to our will. Today, we can assert that a Ukrainian soldier is provided with food, clothing, training and weapons. We've done our best to ensure that the allowance is also at high level," he said.
Over this time, the international coalition that isolates the aggressor and supports Ukraine has been formed, the president stressed.
