This year, 25 units of Ukraine’s Armed Forces will switch to the new system of feeding, which meets the NATO standards. Stepan Poltorak, Ukraine’s defense minister, said this during the joint session of the Ministry and the Armed Forces committee.
‘The reform is underway. The list of relevant food products has been approved. The new feeding system meets the standards of the Alliance; it is much better and up-to-date,’ the official said.
In September 2016, Poltorak signed the technical requirements for the new combat meal of the Armed Forces. That includes 150 grams of hard biscuit, 100 grams of army biscuits, ready-to-out soup with meat, ready-to-eat cereals with meat, an instant coffee stick, two tea bags, three sugar sticks, a honey stick, a fruit jam stick, salt, pepper, a spoon, a napkin and the wet hygiene napkin.
