During a working trip to the Mykolayiv garrison, the Commander of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa, met with the chief officers and sergeants of subordinate military units. The topic of the meeting was a discussion of the state of affairs in the sergeant corps.

First of all, the Commander of the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine outlined three priority areas of activity and proved the main requirements that he identified after leading the national Navy.

– First, it is personnel. I want you to understand and explain to your subordinates that people are my number one priority today. For example, it takes more than 10 years to train a ship’s commander. To train a sergeant or sergeant – not less than 3 years, if we talk about the level of the battalion and above, it is 5-7 years. All this is time and huge resources that the state spends on the training and maintenance of each serviceman, – said Rear Admiral Neizhpapa. – We can build or get ships and modern military equipment, but without trained personnel their operation will not be long. Therefore, we must save people, make every effort to ensure that trained professionals do not leave the service.

The second area, in which Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa focused, focused on the prospects of building the Ukrainian Navy, creating an extensive infrastructure and renewing the ship and boat composition. In particular, he announced plans to transfer two more Island-type boats and Mark VI-type boats as part of US military assistance to Ukraine, as well as the capabilities of the domestic defense industry.

The third, and no less important, area of ​​activity of sergeants and sergeants is leadership, because only after a leader will people follow without hesitation, go into battle and overcome any difficulties.

– The lives and health of subordinates depend on the skills and abilities of sergeants and sergeants, understanding of the situation, commanding qualities. And if the sergeant or sergeant does not care about these issues, he may lose control, and hence human life. Do not be indifferent, be leaders, and teach it to your subordinates. – The commander of the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine addressed.

At the end of the meeting, Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa noted the high contribution of sergeants and officers to the development of the national Navy, thanked them for their service and wished them success in their further work. He promised that similar events would be held in the future.

It should be noted that the meeting took place in the format of a live conversation, where each serviceman could express his opinion and voice to the Commander the problematic issues that concern sergeants and sergeants today.
