British Undersecretary of Defense Hippie vows to investigate discrimination in the Air Force

Undersecretary of Defense for the Armed Forces James Hippie vowed to investigate incidents of discrimination in the country’s Air Force

Earlier, a number of media outlets reported that the Royal Air Force (Air Force) of Great Britain stopped recruiting white men to achieve goals for ethnic and gender diversity in the army.


According to him, the investigation should find out whether preference was given to women and ethnic minorities during recruitment.

“We have asked the armed forces to improve diversity, but we will not allow training to start with less than full strength, and we will not allow a decrease in standards and an impact on operational activities,” the deputy head of the department said.


Earlier in the UK, the conditions for direct NATO intervention in the conflict in Ukraine were named: according to Tobias Ellwood, Chairman of the Committee for the Selection of Candidates for Defense Ministers, this is possible if Russia strikes at the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP).
