According to the official website of the military attorney department of the western region of Ukraine, more than 400 ‘motivated’ soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces escaped from Ukrainian army units only in the west of the country.

The agencies of the military attorney department appealed to citizens: “In order to determine external circumstances and valid reasons of leaving of army units and duty areas we call on citizens to help to ascertain the location of these individuals. With arising questions or any information that will help in determination of these circumstances you can apply to military prosecutor’s offices of garrisons of the western region of Ukraine, using phone numbers in the table. There is a list of servicemen, in respect of which military prosecutor’s offices of garrisons of the western region of Ukraine are performing a pre-trial investigation into the unauthorized leaving of army units and duty areas (data as of 11.07.2016).”

The following information applies only to one region of Ukraine. In general, the situation is much more serious.

    Good! These people should be protected from retaliation or prosecution.

    Generally, when you have mass desertion in a military:

    It means a civil war is not far behind…

    ^.^

    • Gabriel Hollows

      Aren’t they technically in a civil war already?

      • MeMadMax

        Kindof, yeah. But the issues right now have been simmering since the fall of the USSR.

    • Bob

      Mass conscript armies are also notorious for mass desertions in actual war conditions.

  • S600

    Problem with corruption is that aid money never reaches the lower end of the military i.e the foot soldiers . They are living in dangerous conditions and don’t have ample supplies or even good commanders(considering the current situation in Debalstvo). What other choices they have from either taking off somewhere safe or just crossing the lines and move to a “better” place.

      May be it is not a matter of money but mind?! Not every one is a warmonger.

      • S600

        valid point, specially when one has to “war” with own people.

    • Bob

      Poroshenko left his military sitting surrounded in a cauldron at Debalseve. That was classic example of politician making a politically driven military decision, clinging to hazardous territory of no tactical value, to try and look strong for his sponsors. For the average press-ganged conscript in Ukrainian army that cannot be very inspiring example of leadership worthy to put your life in hands of.

      It says “If this story is true…..”. Did you miss that?

      • Jacek Wolski

        ” even official data indicates that the Maikop Garrison Court convicted 62 soldiers in the first half of 2015 on charges of leaving their units without permission”. Did you miss this?

        • 1691

          Comprehension skills?-Missing. It says that they don’t want to fight with Ukrainians, they would rather desert.

          • Jacek Wolski

            OK, so you are a special case, I’ll forgive you. It must be hard for you to recover from a lobotomy.

          • 1691

            Ha ha ha.Thank you for the compliment. For your info: one does not recover from lobotomy. IQ? – polish. What else can I say?

          • Jacek Wolski

            I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out a smarter statement than that.

            So your favourite pastime is feltching. You mum must be so proud of you! Any other hidden talents you’d like to share with the world?

          • dienders

            Blah, blah…. your favorite pastime is spamming utter rubbish, cleaning toilets and blowing d*cks… “You mum” must be proud.

          • Jacek Wolski

            It’s time for you to go in the naughty corner, your mummy said so.

          • dienders

            Lol whut? You are below idiocy. It’s time for you to go die.

          • Jacek Wolski

            Time for your family to turn off your life support. You’re suffering too much cobber.

          • Jacek Wolski

            You’ve been confused and lost since the day you where born.

          • dienders

            “since the day you where born.” WHERE? you’re a janitor in America/Canada, and you are still an illiterate monkey…. you’ve been a monkey since the day you WERE born, and you’ll die like a monkey. Soon I hope – you won’t be missed :D

          • Jacek Wolski

            I knew that Dutch where stupid, but you are scrapping the bottom of a rubbish tip looking for intelligence.

          • dienders

            I knew all polacks are retarded masochists but you are extremely sick… I told you before: No, I will not pee on you, not any more, no matter how much you beg me! I’m just going to laugh at you some more: ha ha ha!
            Now die and R.I.P.(iss)

          • Jacek Wolski

            I have manners. So after you, ladies before gentlemen 😋

        • Spunkyhunk

          Why do you Polish guys always HAVE to be anti-Russian? Don’t you think it’s time to put this useless tribal vendetta to rest, at this point? Can’t you see that Russia poses NO threat to Poland or Poles AT ALL today; and that the REAL evil in today’s world is the psycho Western elites having aligned themselves with Islamists?

          • Jacek Wolski

            “Can’t you see that Russia poses NO threat to Poland” I agree with this comment. “that the REAL evil in today’s world is the psycho Western elites having aligned themselves with Islamists?” I also concur with this statement, and its inarguable that Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is a strong leader and a role model for the rest of the leaders around the world. But that does not mean that I agree with all of his policies. The article that I posted was written in a Russian owned newspaper by a Russian journalist about problems in the Russian Armed Forces. And just because I have a Polish name does that automatically make me Polish? Next thing you’ll be saying is that Russian Aerospace Forces only bomb hospitals in Aleppo! So your kind of comparison is inappropriate in both form and substance.
            A good day to you Sir.

          • Joseph Scott

            I would ask you in turn: Why does acknowledging the problems and mistakes of Russia in past and present have to be attributed to being anti-Russian? Facing facts objectively doesn’t make a person anti-anything. Being unable to see the flaws of the groups you prefer is very dangerous: that kind of attitude, once widespread enough among a given group, degrades it’s quality, as problems are all glossed over as ‘enemy propaganda’, rather than addressed and fixed. Russia’s armed forces inherited a few very serious defects, which any credible student of Russian military history is aware. That is certainly not unique to them, and they have made a sincere and somewhat successful effort to fix them, but they aren’t just going to vanish overnight, after a couple centuries of institutionalisation.

    Desert or die…

    Easy choice really….

  • Garry Compton

    I can hardly wait for the list that comes out on those Crimean soldiers and support people who switched sides during the fiasco called Maidan – 15,000 said ” Adios Ukraine” Buenos Diaz Russia.
