As he noted in an interview, which was recorded before his death sentence in the DPR, the Ukrainian army drinks a lot and the military of the Armed Forces of Ukraine “lacks professionalism.”

“I remember once we took up positions instead of an army unit ... We met a fighter who smelled of alcohol: he was drunk as a fool.

He did not remember the safe way to the position, he almost fell into the stretch, ”he said.

Earlier, a deputy of the Ukrainian Rada, Roman Kostenko, announced "very heavy losses" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which are inflicted by long-range artillery of the Russian army.
