Military Review

The Pentagon spoke about the role of military instructors from the United States to Ukraine

71
The US authorities have no plans in the near future to increase the role and number of American military instructors in Ukraine. This statement was made by the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis.


No, I do not see a change in the role of US forces in Ukraine. I do not think that our number has changed within six months, and this is not planned now. There are absolutely no plans to change this number.
- told US Secretary of Defense.

The Pentagon spoke about the role of military instructors from the United States to Ukraine


At the same time, Mattis assured that any changes in the number of American military advisers in Ukraine are explained only by their rotation.

The US military has been training Ukrainian troops since 2015.

The head of the Pentagon also commented on the recent decision of Washington to begin supplying arms to Kiev.

Hopefully, it will not have any major impact, as long as no one wants to invade Ukraine. It's about defensive weapons
- said Mattis, who quoted Tass.

Recall that at the beginning of the week, the US State Department confirmed the White House’s intention to begin supplying lethal weapons Kiev, including modern anti-tank missile systems Javelin. It is reported that 35 launchers Javelin and 210 anti-tank missiles will be delivered for a total amount of 47 million dollars. Later it became known that Washington decided to put Ukraine large-caliber sniper rifles Barrett M107A1.

According to Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin, “in this way Washington’s hawks are trying, as they believe, to raise for Russia“ the cost of the conflict in the Donbas. ”

            Absolutely right! The only difference is that star-striped from the crazy Pentagon add fuel to a fire in Ukraine (and Europe), i.e. not in their own country, but in a foreign country, located far away from their own native United States, which they consider to be completely safe for themselves because of the geographical location of the United States overseas!

              For some reason, the United States believed that through a large puddle, the sparks of a campfire inflated by them would not burn their own home.

                The United States is simply bursting around the world with its lightning-fast preemptive strike strategy for a retaliatory strike control system, for example, in Russia itself.
                While the Pentagon is building its air defense in neighboring countries along the perimeter of the borders of the Russian Federation, we will hear from them lulling conversations about our allegedly peacefulness towards Russia. As soon as the USA closes its defense ring around Russia, the USA will strike at Russia with nuclear weapons without delay and without any warning if the Russian Armed Forces are not ready for this!
                This Pharisee star-striped Satanism in recent years, and especially now, is in full swing with them!

      Judging by the fact that by exchange - they exchange LDN citizens for citizens of the rest of Urkaina, then they are fighting with themselves - in other words, a civil war. If Russia had actually invaded, then the insignificance of banderlogs would have bombarded the nearby European neighborhoods, as was the case in Syria with bearded “boys”. Along the way, dill themselves no longer believe in the Russian presence, but caring American instructors methodically hammer the opposite into their heads.

    It’s quite a reason for this to officially send Russian instructors to the LDNR army. Probably the faith and nationality of the inhabitants of Donbass interfere. Now, if the Donetsk people had become all Alavites or Yezidis, then they would have "kicked the Caspian Flotilla with a caliber." In the meantime, the "formidable Surkov" is negotiating the conditions for the occupation of Donbass by Western armies.

    squeezed from the quiet Zakhar in Svetlodarsk, according to her resident, there is a battalion of Georgians and American niggas who start shelling Logvinovo and other front-line villages at night and then tell the OSCE that it was done by separs. In general, no one broadcasts anything over the gray zone. . and the aggressive essence of the Kiev elite does not hide its plans to occupy it completely. But Lavrov is silent and Minsk, too, and strange katalshiks from the OSCE only ask the military About the block in Majorsk — to clear the way for them from cars and people, and there is a 15-meter strip between the thorn and the thorn and 4 rows of cars and 1 row for the oncoming traffic, it's just tin how to go to pedestrians.

      I agree with the “digital” one, pedestrians go to the KPVP between cars, but this mess is only on the Dnieper side, and the hohlofashists have more order, there cars are separated from the pedestrians by a fence.
      "in Svetlodarsk depressed from the peaceful Zakhar" -what is this? Svetlodarsk was never under the “zakhar” (except for the times of the “Yanyk”), though our degeneral major then traded chicken at Akhmetka.
      Explain your mysterious phrase in more detail.

    Khlebalovo failed, not respected! As Sherlock Holmes said, "Suck the Walters and don't get distracted." It’s better to “cheat” you on “There is no censor.”

    The role of the USA in the second-hand Ukraine, these are the diabolical dances of the crazy crazy on fire - they add fuel to the bonfire of the civil war ...
    Absolutely right! The only difference is that star-striped from the crazy Pentagon add fuel to a fire in Ukraine (and Europe), i.e. not in their own country, but in a foreign country, located far away from their own native United States, which they consider to be completely safe for themselves because of the geographical location of the United States overseas!

    And I heard that the Chukchi sleigh ride to Omerika. Not a joke. And the Constitutional Court removed Dodon from power today. You there at least do not get drunk with grief. Not a joke.

      On a sleigh? through the Bering Strait? under 100 km. on a sleigh? in our age of airplanes and snowmobiles ???
      Cross-border movement of related peoples - such an official contract! but so that on a sleigh ??? although we can have such a chip, a return to the roots, the origins!
      Dodon ... and who is this? do they have a constitutional court? and Filat hto, king and god? and it surrendered to us, nafig or what?

    And why should they change the number? The Anti-Russia project is progressing successfully - the factual bases in Ochakovo and Yavorovo, the reprogramming of the second largest part of the Russian ethnic group is going according to plan, the anti-Russian forces in power, the Donbass are smoldering, the whole situation is like a lever of pressure on Russia for a long time, the second is economically the potential of the Slavic country in the walk-field is taking its course. In such a situation - why increase the effort?

    What do you want? Hybrid warfare is a hybrid response. What is the price of oil and gas? Reserve reserve fund - has the turn come to the national welfare fund? And the second of February is close, and the heart beats like a deer ... Have a good mood!

    And who is Ukraine fighting with then? On every corner they shouted that the Russian army had invaded the Donbass. That Ukrainian cyborgs heroically restrain the onslaught of the damned Muscovites and have already knocked out a hundred Armat ...

    Are these the Armats that were towed to Red Tow by a tow truck on Red Square?

    I just wanted to say that before the United States from Russia is not the ocean, but only 86 km. And she will not be able to hide from you across the ocean. And about the sleigh and sledding I was told by the border guard officer. Maybe it’s pinned, but on the other hand, I’m not talking about a possible problem with the fuel, the engine may simply break down on the floor of the road. And how then?

      Border guards officers they are, I can tell you a lot of things! There is such army humor, bikes are called!
      On dogs, local, unlikely. Someone like Konyukhov or other eccentrics! These can ski, but at least on foot.
      And the locals will take 2 - 3 snowmobiles and in a day they can manage ... they need to run on the dogs for several days, they need it!
      By the way, for the question: are the Yankees hiding from us? Alaska is a special part of America, very far from the political and economic center. From a military point of view, there are no territories on earth that are unattainable for defeat! So this is no longer a matter of principle.

    Now, if the Ukrainians had been trained by German instructors, it was worth fearing. And with regards to the Americans, their instructors showed their failure both in Georgia and in the East.
