The Minister accused of weakening Ukraine

Some anti-crisis coalition members have registered a decree on dismissal of Defense Minister Anatoliy Hrytsenko once again, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.

They accuse the Minister of weakening Ukraine’s preparation for armed aggression or conflict, ineffective control over immovables and lands, growing deaths of military men in peace-time, and low motivation of the population regarding the arms service.

The lawmakers claim that all these factors undermine Ukraine’s international image. Hrytsenko should bear personal responsibility for this, but unfortunately he lags behind the times and Ukraine’s needs.

“We consider that if Hrytsenko remains Defense Minister, it will threaten the national safety and national interests of Ukraine,” the MPs assure.

The decree was first registered on November 30 and drafted for the second time on December 4. The national deputy from Party of Regions Kalashnikov is one of its authors.
