In addition, the ARD reported, citing sources in the government of Germany, during the talks in Minsk Poroshenko its Western allies left in the dark about the weakness of the Ukrainian army. Might imply ARD, Poroshenko himself was not aware of the real situation, which, however, does not create a favorable impression of him.
As a result, the Ukrainian military failed to "debaltsevskom boiler": the soldiers are demoralized, many lives lost needlessly. Poroshenko himself at the same time stated that "proud and happy, that is the supreme commander of the armed forces."
Chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Wolfgang Ischinger in conversation with ARD noted that the weakness of the Ukrainian army came as a surprise not only for Kiev, but for many in the West. "We are dealing with a decaying and no longer able to fight the army" - summed it.
