Quote: "The more Ukrainians find the courage to join the ranks of the Armed Forces, the less chances Russia will have to implement its bloodthirsty plans, and the sooner Ukrainian cities will resume their ordinary and safe life.


I therefore urge Ukrainians to leave emotions behind and not succumb to provocations. It is imperative to realise that no one can stay away. The fate of the country, the fate of our nation, is at stake."

Details: Pavliuk firmly believes that "Russia will not leave anyone alone: neither those who have hidden nor those who have betrayed Ukraine".

"Now is a historical moment that fate has given us: either we will defend and preserve the state, or we will disappear as a nation! Support the defenders with both word and deed. Join the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Stand up for your family, your home, your country, and your future. Our strength is in unity! There is no other option," the officer summed up.


He added that Ukraine's Armed Forces need various specialists: drivers, clerks, cooks, builders, IT specialists, accountants, doctors, and engineers.
