Hrytsenko: Ukrainian army currently unfit for combat
Hrytsenko said that at least five to seven years would be needed to recover the army from its current state.
When asked whether he will agree to become defense minister again, Hrytsenko said: "I won't agree to be defense minister under supreme commander-in-chief Yanukovych."
"It's possible just under one condition - in case of a real threat of war, when it will be necessary to defend our country," he said.
