The appointed head of the military department immediately made a loud and "promising" political statement. Talking to reporters and answering their questions about the salaries of the military, he said that the army should become the "best employer" in the country.
In his opinion, the military needs not only to raise wages, but to change the system of remuneration of military personnel, making it more "understandable" and motivated. He clarified that the "employer" must attract the "best", which can be achieved solely through motivation.
The army must become the best, most powerful employer in the country. 250 thousand people plus 11 thousand ... Imagine. There is no such thing, probably more than an employer
- he explained.
Reznikov also promised to audit all the property of the Ministry of Defense and effectively use it in the interests of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Armed Forces protect us, I protect the Armed Forces
