Kyiv, August 24. The day of the so-called independence of Ukraine during the parade on Khreshchatyk with the participation of units of NATO countries hundreds of officers were publicly subjected to humiliating procedures by guards, Petro Poroshenko.

As reported later told FAN the officers, inspecting troops informed was always blamed on the officers themselves admitted to the parade.
"But such a humiliation to us in the square were forced to stand with their hands up, and Shpak poked us in the codpiece detectors had never been available before.
Perhaps this is due to the arrival of the head of the Pentagon James Mattis, but this is the behavior of the guards does not justify. And note, the NATO troops they were not searched", - indignantly said the FAN APU officers. However, some of the officers during the search humbly smiled.
What was looking in the pants of the officers of the guards Poroshenko, remains unclear – a weapon that is used in parades, always inspected beforehand. All weapons, including military equipment, on the eve of the event deprived not only of ammunition but also of significant details to make the shot.
