On December 6, the Ukrainian Army marks its professional holiday. It was officially established in 1991; all service branches, the Ground Forces, the Air Force and the Navy celebrate this day.

The Ukrainian army is currently in the Top 10 of Europe’s strongest militaries based on the research released by Business Insider. The rank takes into account a number of factors, such as the manpower, the overall firepower and the level of technical equipment.

Foreign commanders repeatedly recognized that the experience of Ukrainian troops appeared quite valuable for their own armies.
