Waiting for an order from above can mean great losses of personnel. This is a step back and the impossibility of saving a soldier’s life.
“It is very unfortunate that on his birthday the president gave us all a “gift” – by signing Law No. 8271, which strengthens the criminal liability of the military. Courts will be prohibited from reducing punishments or giving suspended terms to military convicts for:
– non-fulfillment of the order,
– voluntary abandonment of the battlefield or escape from a military unit,
– threats or violent actions against management,” she said.
Odnorog noted that the draft law was considered for almost 1.5 months and was supported by Zaluzhny.
“We, military volunteers, were silent for a very long time, because it was “not the right time”, we single-handedly tried to fight against such commanders as Filin, for whom the life of a soldier is worth nothing, because the career is “our life”. And, unfortunately, there are many such commanders , young, ambitious, who do not go to the “ass of the world”, but give orders far from the front line.
I have a simple question:
– and why is there no clause in this order that the commanders who give the meaningless orders should not be there with the soldiers themselves?
We are still very far from international standards in the army, we still have a lot of “scoop” in the army, we are only building the army according to NATO standards, and this order crosses out all the new things that could happen when the military could make decisions on their own, because the situation can change every minute and waiting for an order from above can mean great losses of personnel. This is a step back and the impossibility of saving a soldier’s life, because our Victory depends on them, on those who dig the trenches!”, the volunteer concluded.
We will remind, on January 25, Zelensky signed the law on increased responsibility for military personnel.
