The history of independent Ukrainian army can be divided into periods "before 2014" and "after 2014".
“Before” is a period of peacekeeping operations and very slow development. “After” is a period of war and the need to develop fast in conditions unsuitable for this.

This is according to the Business Insider ranking.
According to the agency, Ukraine’s military budget is $4,88 billion, 1,1 million people of personnel, 2214 tanks, 240 warplanes, 29 of which are fighter aircraft, and 25 naval vessels – all these made Ukraine reach the 10th place in the rating.

In September this year, Poroshenko said the death toll of Ukrainian servicemen since the outbreak of hostilities in Donbas was almost 3,000.
Such are the intermediate results with which the Ukrainian Armed Forces meet their 27th anniversary. Now a little more about the holiday itself.
