On April 14th the Supreme Commander of the UAF Petro Poroshenko signed the law “About the Introduction of Amendments to Some Acts of Ukraine concerning the Strengthening of Responsibility of Military Personnel and Some Other Persons”, which is designed to stop alcoholism among the Ukrainian military personnel. Less than a week later the “Warriors of light and good” not only spit on the decrees of the commander-in-chief and the law of Ukraine, but showed all the dirtiness of the bunch of punishers that is called the UAF.

On April 18th at the Yavorovsky training ground near Lvov, during a wine party, a 26-year-old staff sergeant killed a 31-year-old woman — a field medic. The wine party was almost a family celebration – in honor of the “engagement” of the sergeant-murderer and a military psychologist of the same unit. All three are participants of the anti-terrorist operation. The deceased has a husband who is presently in the combat zone. In a drunken state the sergeant struck the medic with two blows of a knife in the breast, cut her throat, and afterwards, having understood that he killed her, he took the body of the woman outside and threw it into a cesspool on the territory of the camp.

Particular cynicism is added to the tragedy by the fact that the Yavorovsky training ground is now “The International Center of Peacemaking and Safety”, where all three participants of the bloody engagement arrived for training. If Ukrainian “peacemakers” for a sideways glance are ready to slash each other and women one thousand kilometers from the anti-terrorist operation, then one can only wonder how they behave towards civilians on the frontline in the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

But can it be a different way in Army, the Supreme Commander of which not only permanently is “tipsy”, but isn’t even ashamed to turn up in such a state during public statements or at international meetings?
