According to a source at the Ministry of Defense, army units are now being involved in the political conflict, writes ZN.UA, the site of Dzerkalo Tyzhnia, a political weekly.
During the last two days, the Ministry has been training soldiers to cater food to paid demonstrators who are being transported en masse to Kyiv for a pro-Yanukovych rally this weekend. Both Armed Forces soldiers and civilian staff are being put through training now.
At the MoD’s №30 Transport Depot, Defense Minister Pavlo Lebedev has given orders to carry out an inventory of military equipment such as field kitchens, vehicles, and so on in order to immediately rent it to Ukrpromakord, the company that caters food to the Armed Forces.
Dzerkalo Tyzhnia writes that, despite their protests that the Minister had made a public statement regarding the Army’s neutrality in political matters, people are being forced follow orders on threat of being fired and court-martialed for insubordination.
There is a real danger that the planned violence by the authorities will result in civil war. Rob ell us your story
