Kyiv Pechersky District Court arrested the former Head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Volodymyr Zamana suspected in state treason without a right for bail till March 27, 2019, as Interfax reported.
This decision might be appealed. The whole text of the court’s order will be announced on March 1.
As Ukraine’s Chief Military Prosecutor Anatoliy Matios stated, over the period when Zamana held the post, he signed orders for downsizing of the officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The number of orders per 4,436 people exceeded the norm provided by the law “On size of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” for 2012.
Besides, when in office, anti-craft missile divisions were dissolved, which had S-300 missile systems in service. Besides, the 874th, 5001st, 2081st anti-craft missile divisions and the 137th, 208th surface-to-air missile brigades were disbanded.

Over the period of his work, Ukraine was completely deprived of air defence. This is related to the disbandment of 19 military aviation units and establishments. Besides, the 114th tactical aviation brigade was reformatted from a brigade into a squadron.
The Chief Military Prosecutor stressed that all this “created significant advantages for the Russian Black Sea Fleet concerning the control and blockade of Armed Forces of Ukraine units in Crimea in case of open or hybrid aggression against Ukraine aimed at annexation of Crimea”.

According to him, in September 2012 Zamana agreed the order of change of the technical state of the military property, which provided that 588 units, mostly anti-aircraft missile systems were dismantled.
Volodymyr Zamana became the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in February 2012 and held this post till February 19, 2014. Then, on February 22, 2014 Zaman was appointed as the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada to control the activity of the Defence Ministry of Ukraine, where he worked till June, 2014.
