The United States intends to train four more battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2018

23
The Pentagon plans to prepare four more battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) next year. This was reported by the representative of the European Command (EUCOM, YUKOM) US Armed Forces.


I can say that we will help with the four rotations planned over the next year.
- said the representative of UCOM. As he explained, we are talking about the preparation of one battalion during each such rotation.

The United States intends to train four more battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2018


We continue to act as advisers for the Ukrainian army.
- noted the representative of the European Command.

In turn, the State Department said that the US administration continues to "study Ukraine's requests" for the provision of this or that military equipment and other types of military assistance.

Since 2014, we have provided equipment and training for an amount in excess of $ 750 million <...>
- The employee added the US Foreign Office.

In the 2017 fiscal year ending in the USA on September 30, the Pentagon, as testified earlier in YUKOM, was to train four battalions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. But in the process of such activities, the American side hoped to switch the main attention to creating a center for combat training of Ukrainian troops at the Yavoriv training ground in the Lviv region. In 2016, the United States prepared six battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including one - special forces. The year before last, the United States trained three battalions of the National Guard of Ukraine, which, as the Russian Foreign Ministry previously pointed out, was joined by ultranationalists.

According to information previously stated by the American authorities, Kiev was transmitted, in particular, counter-battery radars, unmanned aerial vehicles, protected communications and electronic warfare. Nevertheless, Ukraine is seeking and supplying American weapons, transmits TASS.

    Someone else’s hands want to spoil us even more. After all, they can also prepare terrorists, and we still accept Ukrainians without question and without any verification everywhere.
    It is time to introduce a visa and border control in full, plus track all the movements of citizens of Ukraine who have arrived to us.

              They master the budget, but they did not guarantee the result.

                  Initially, they were not interested, the main thing is that they would bark at Russia and wave their weapons.

        With the barrel down, it’s not just like that. The host parade is afraid that it will be easier to shoot it with the barrel up. Each has many cartridges in his pockets.
        And so, he will manage to steer while fighters will unfold trunks.

      It is terrible to think what will happen - four battalions of fighting homosexuals, a terrible force! Ukrainian women will begin to leave their homeland en masse, everyone is likely to go to us. Well, of course, but is there enough health for everyone?

    For the Georgian have already done it. They pushed to the war and stepped aside. Now "pump" the APU in the same way. Where there are American advisers and instructors, do not wait for good.

    In Georgia, they also taught soldiers, and they turned out to be "worthy" of their teachers.

    To create battalions is half the battle, you still need to equip them with the appropriate equipment for a successful escape from the boiler.
