On Thursday celebrated the Day of a flag. 250 units of military equipment and 4,5 thousand soldiers will participate in a military parade, flight of military aircraft is planned. Women's divisions will for the first time take part. Petro Poroshenko in honor of Day of a flag has said during the speech that the Ukrainian army "will be one of the strongest in Europe because Ukrainians know well today for what they are at war". He has also apologized for the fact that in 2014 he promised to finish the military operation in Donbass in "only a few hours". "I sincerely apologize that has given hope which hasn't come true" — he has said. With what does Ukraine meet another anniversary of the statehood? About it is in Georgy Bovt's comment. If to listen to some Ukrainian politicians, on a military parade in Kiev have to show something so indestructible and in advance legendary that, according to one of deputies, it has to "cause an earthquake in the Kremlin". Though, according to many authoritative experts, actually Ukrainian military industrial complex for Post-Soviet years hasn't created any essentially new types of arms, and at the heart of fighting power of the Ukrainian army there is still slightly upgraded Soviet equipment, for example the T-64 tank which began to be created still in the sixties. The technical and industrial base is in the semi-decayed state now, many experts have left the places. Apparently, in the future Ukraine should buy the NATO equipment, and not on the money, and on what will be given out by the USA and other western countries. Since 2014 Washington has already provided to Kiev military aid in different forms approximately for 1 billion dollars. At the same time the public debt of the country for the last five years has grown four times, having exceeded 71 billion dollars — more than 70% of the Ukrainian GDP. The peak of payments for external obligations falls on the next two years, at the same time the agreement on financial aid from the IMF for 17 billion dollars expires in the spring of the next year, just to the regular parliamentary elections. But the current military parade will become the next triumph of the Ukrainian nationalism. On him for the first time still a traditional Soviet greeting to troops "Hello, companions!" and also "I wish health!" will replace on Banderist "Glory to Ukraine!" and "To heroes glory!" Guests of a military parade will become delegation from 15 countries, generally members of NATO. But the main guest — the adviser to the U.S. President for national security John Bolton who not only will be present at a parade but also will meet all leaders of Ukraine, starting with the president. The sharpness of the anti-Russian statements of Kiev and also increase in number of military collisions in the southeast of Ukraine have occurred against the background of deterioration in the Russian-American relations and strengthening of sanctions pressure of Washington
