Defense Minister of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak expressed confidence that the march on the Independence Day is needed by all, both the military and civilians during the rehearsal on Khreshchatyk. 112 Ukraine TV Channel reports this.
"Everyone must know there is a war, so as about the equipment and personnel. It is a holiday for the military and I am convinced that everyone needs the march - not only military, but also civil citizens. This March is for all Ukrainians who from the first day of aggression against Ukraine went to the front to defend our country", said Poltorak.
He also said he was satisfied with the actions of the mechanized column.
"Today, I am fully satisfied with the actions of the mechanized column. It completed its work. Personnel will still operate. The machinery was sent to the military units, but it will be here on the Independence Day", the minister said.
