“I literally
didn’t know what to do,” the 37-year-old Dnipropetrovsk native explained with a
smile during an interview with the Kyiv Post. She was one of several volunteers
who a year ago joined
the ministry’s Reforms Office,
tasked by President Petro Poroshenko with improving the military’s
organization.

The primary tasks
the office was charged with included overseeing the transition from the
army’s antiquated logistical system to a more efficient model, managing new warehouses
and providing soldiers with NATO-standard military uniforms. Rychkova
previously worked as a volunteer running supplies to the Ukrainian military on
the front lines in the Donbas.

Now, a year later,
Rychkova, who also has served an advisor to Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak,
says she’s proud of the office’s achievements.
