“It was a great pleasure to visit the classes of the Military Department. It’s wonderful that we also have female students training in the military. I recalled my own military service (1987-1989) and studying at the Military Department at my alma mater. Now I’m a reserve lieutenant colonel. By the way, I think the military service years were ones of the best in my life! I am sure that a real man should pass the school of masculinity and be able to defend his family and Ukraine!” Rector of National University “Yuri Kondratyuk Poltava Polytechnic”, Professor Volodymyr Onyshchenko said.
