October 29 is annually celebrated thanksgiving Day Ukraine.
This holiday was established in 1999 by order of the Minister of defence of Ukraine. Its main goal is the increase the authority of military personnel serving in financial and economic bodies, as well as strengthening the image of the financial service of the Armed forces of Ukraine in General.
One of the major challenges facing military personnel performing their service in the financial-economic bodies of the armed forces of Ukraine, is the elimination of salaries for servicemen of all arms at a decent level and create favorable conditions for the timely payment of their salaries and wages.
Funding of the Armed forces of Ukraine is carried out entirely at the expense of the state.
In recent years, traditionally, October 29, employees of financial-economic bodies of the armed forces of Ukraine congratulated the leaders of the various military departments and military units at all levels. The best workers were awarded for “meritorious service, the manifestation of a reasonable initiative and high professionalism.”
