Poroshenko boasted place of the Ukrainian army in the ranking of the armies of Europe
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the country’s Armed forces (APU) took eighth place in the ranking of the armies of Europe. About this he wrote in his Facebook.
“APU among the top ten strongest armies in Europe. According to Global Firepower, the Ukrainian army is the strongest on the European continent among the armed forces of States not members of NATO”, — he said.
On 15 April, the President spoke about the victory of Ukrainian paratroopers in Poland and boasted the success of the army of the country. According to him, over the past four years, while Ukraine was engaged in the restoration of the army, the Armed forces of the country has become one of the most effective armies in Europe. The people of Ukraine have ridiculed this claim, suggesting that Poroshenko demonstrated his sense of humor, more like mockery of the people.
In 2016, Poroshenko said that the APU is “strongest in Europe”, adding that this figure was achieved within two and a half years.
