The joint military drills that are being held by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense involving US instructors are absolutely senseless, Deinega said in an interview with radio station Golos Stolitsy.
“This is enough to make a cat laugh,” he said. “These American instructors come here and learn from us. They aren’t capable of teaching us something we don’t know.”
The Ukrainian forces are far more experienced than those of the US, Deinega noted, referring to troops who had been fighting in Donbass. He pointed out that there are better options to fill instructor positions in the Ukrainian army.
So far, this is not the first case when two states have united for carrying out military exercises.
Earlier, various media reported of the completion of joint US-Ukrainian naval drills entitled Sea Breeze-2015 in Odessa. As soon as they ended up, the Commander of Ukraine’s Naval Forces Sergey Gaiduk pronounced them to be a “real step towards stability and peace in the Black Sea region.”
