Yes, like Napoleon said: If you don’t want to feed your army, prepare to feed someone else’s (or something – not an exact quote)
It is weird for me to – because the war is LITERALLY in my neighborhood – I moved from Donetsk during the summer, when the heaviest fighting commenced.
Also, yes – the modernization is moving pretty fast, and in many regards due to volunteers and the public. People donate millions every day.
For example, check out this project: http://www.peoplesproject.com/en/ – they collect money for anything from individual surgeries to plane modification kits.
These guys: http://www.savelife.in.ua/ – also do a lot. For example, they already bought over 3,000 night vision scopes/googles.
I’m not even going to talk about the countless food and supplies drives organized near practically every big supermarket in the country.
The army is still pretty backwards and corrupt, but people and the efforts of some of the new patriots in the Ministries – play a huge role.
Without any doubts – Ukraine would have lost if it wasn’t for the people. This is truly a people’s army in any direct and indirect sense.
