Congratulations on the Day of the Army Signal Corps

I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday, the Day of the Army Signal Corps. It was on August 8, 1920 when the second Kiev military engineering courses were created on the basis of the former Constantine Military Cadet School, and the training of signalmen began. Thus was the start of the glorious history of the Army Signal Corps.

The history of the Army Signal Corps confirms its crucial role in military conflicts and achieving a victory. This is evidenced by the growth of the share of signalmen in the overall number of troops. From 3% of the Red Army during the Civil War, it was about three per cent of the Red Army, the Signal Corps accounted for 5% of the military personnel by the beginning of World War II. At the end of World War II, almost one of ten servicemen was a signalman. Today, about 12% of the armed forces are signalmen, and the role of the Signal Corps in maintaining permanent combat readiness of the armed forces has grown even more.

The Army Signal Corps of Ukraine originate from the Army Signal Corps of the Soviet Union. In January 1992, the Signal Corps Department of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was established and started to build the Signal Corps of the independent state. During the existence of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, disparate communications systems have been transformed into a unified system that is capable of providing reliable control of the armed forces in any environment.

I wish you good health, harmony and well-being of your family, kindness and peace.
