Service on the side of the occupier:
He voluntarily took the side of the occupant, moreover, he welcomed the Russian invaders with open arms near the checkpoint of his own unit. According to Nikolai’s former servicemen, they characterized him as a patriot, but it was very unexpected that an officer with such a serious service record and level of individual training could so easily and quickly betray the interests of his country.
When the seizure of a military unit took place, or rather the unimpeded passage through the checkpoint, few would have expected such actions from a commander at that level.
Nikolai Konstantinovich first gave the invaders radio stations, and later made a speech to the personnel, where he proposed to make a transition to the side of the Russian Federation due to an increase in wages and receiving the status of a participant in hostilities.
All in all, it is interesting enough to know what might have induced an officer of this level to switch to the side of the occupier. After all, behind his back and training in the U.S., which was organized by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, participation in international conflict, and even receiving a green beret from Queen Elizabeth II.
It is unlikely that all these achievements will be taken into account and appreciated in the rf, and most importantly, whether the rf can provide such a high level of education and training for its personnel as Ukraine has been able to do.
