"Pavlovich" - so respectfully here - in the area of ввthe ATO - called Lieutenant Colonel Anatoly Pavlovich Voitenko. Throughout his adult life he gave army served in Hungary, in the Dnipropetrovsk region, in Donbass. Each time a new location service family moved him. The last 15 years Voitenko, having gone on a pension, he taught at the military department of a university in Donetsk.
And then the ATO ... Lieutenant Colonel, was well aware that the real name of what is happening - the war. Stay out of it, do not come to the defense of Ukraine, he could not - it was not in his character, not in his life principles. The family moved in the Kharkiv region, and Anatoly Voitenko comes as a volunteer in the National Guard of Ukraine.
For the first time we saw a lieutenant colonel in the territory of one of the units stationed in Slavyansk, even in the winter. He repaired to the soldiers, "squeezed" the Russian military anti-aircraft guns.
"Remove the Ukrainian troops from our peaceful villages Donbass!" - One of the most common phrase Kremlin propaganda. But here - in the Donbass - the demarcation line almost nothing like we have not heard.
We went to the most advanced. The path led through one of the villages in which we were already in the winter. Then there was stationed part of Vinnitsa. Today, there are Kharkiv.
That is why not drive past and we could not stop. In addition, there lives one of the heroines of our past publications - stationmaster Baba Galya. The one that does not just let our men to his house to wait, but also help them in every way.
Four days from morning till night she works in Ukraine, and then flying home to Tallinn, where she was waiting for her husband and young son. Estonian Janik The measure called the "angel" of the Ukrainian economy, the new sex - symbol of the political beau monde, mainly optimistic reform team.

In the age of video clubs (and later, happened when Hollywood came to the television screens and in movie theaters), regarding foreign kinoanturazhi, I wonder why each little shops in the park, near a private house is bound to have the US flag? What this facade? The post-Soviet teenager was wonderful, Americans sing the national anthem, hand on heart - what exaggerated respect for the military and a surreal life at the cost of a desire to protect the country, the Stars and Stripes and the blonde babe from aggression. Anyway someone: Russian, drug lords, terrorists, aliens ...
We all know that Ukrainian volunteers succeeded incredible. It is they, the people managers, could really help the formation of the Ukrainian Army, clothe and feed her. They appointed to high positions instead of the traditional Soviet generals were able to at least partially destroy the tried and tested for decades corrupt schemes.
So I thought, maybe we should use the successful experience of the volunteer movement for the whole country. Replace volunteer ministers and deputies! I am sure those of our fellow citizens will be more effective ambassadors of today's political parties and frank clan. Not burdened by the political experience of the past and parliamentary intrigues, they will be able quickly enough to separate the healthy grain Ukrainian internal life of the demagogic and criminal chaff. It is they, our volunteers will make that long demanded by common sense Ukrainian and foreign partners civilized - Department finally politics from business. The air in our country will immediately become cleaner and more pleasant.
