    Since the war is carried out with the money of the West, the Ukrainian economy is of very little importance for the continuation of the war. Moreover, in the conditions of the collapse of the energy system and, more broadly, the economy, those who now have to be caught can be accepted as volunteers. Everyone wants to eat, but in the army they feed and pay.
