Britain will strengthen the military support of Ukraine

Britain will not only continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine, but will also significantly increase its military support, for which it will send its fleet and military personnel to Ukraine, The Daily Telegraph quotes a statement by British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson.


Britain will strengthen the military support of Ukraine


The head of the British military department, Gavin Williamson, said that in the person of Great Britain, Ukraine has a reliable partner who will assist the Ukrainian army "while Ukraine is facing aggressive actions by Russia." He promised to send in the country the British military, which will be engaged in the preparation of Ukrainian marines and special forces. Williams also promised that in the near future a multipurpose hydrographic reconnaissance ship of the British Navy with a crew of 72 man will arrive to help the Ukrainian Navy.

According to the British Minister, the United Kingdom will help Ukraine to protect freedom and democracy.

Military cooperation between the United Kingdom and Ukraine has been going on since 2014, and in 2017, countries agreed to strengthen it by establishing cooperation in the field of intelligence and cyber defense. According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, over the course of cooperation, the British instructors have trained more than three thousand Ukrainian soldiers.

    Considering that the British are extremely cynical and are looking for their own profit in everything, I would have already begun to worry about the place of the Ukrainians.

      Throughout its history, England has many times fulfilled its allied duty upon demand.
      Take, for example, the Soviet-Finnish war, to which the British, however, were completely late, but courageously promised to help Finland.
      Take World War II, where the British helped Poland and Denmark, Belgium and France at the right time, etc.
      I must say, and in World War I, the British were famous for their immediate reaction to the requests of the Allies.

      Given some historical lessons, in this case, in the place of the Ukrainians, I would not worry at all. I would simply be sure that in the event of a real unsatisfactory state of affairs, the British warriors would be anywhere, but not in Ukraine. There, by the way, winter is coming soon, and as relatively recent exercises in Norway have shown, the British cannot fight at temperatures below -8 - the diapers freeze.

      In addition, why should the power, the 5th year (already longer than the First World War be) restrain Russian aggression, outside help?

      True, Russia is also not in a hurry to fight, and the fifth year, as it was, still hadn’t come, so I would start worrying about this fact in the place of the Ukrainians. After all, if the Russian Federation comes to war, the Kiev junta will feel it right away, and the British, even if they find themselves in Ukraine, will be darted even faster than draped up to Dunkirk at the time ...

    to the aid of the Ukrainian Navy will arrive a multipurpose hydrographic survey ship of the British Navy with a crew of 72 people.
    We do not need a reconnaissance ship in the Black Sea, I propose to arrange long-term exercises of the Russian Federation Black Sea Fleet in the areas where it is located.

    The British used to send troops to the Crimea, but now they acted somewhat modestly: just instructors and a small "hydrographic" vessel. It is clear that it is espionage, or even sabotage, but still too small.

    Let the British remember the fate of their adviser, Captain Slade, who in 1853 barely blew his feet on the only Turkish ship that survived the 14 participating in the Sinop battle when Nakhimov kicked the withers of the Turkish sultan.

    Here it’s a no brainer that the juggling Saxons will not stop helping the Ukrainian junta while the junta itself is alive. Now their work is not dusty, tossing firewood into the fire. The principle is simple, burn, burn clearly, so as not to go out.

    Well, the fact that Britain helps, we already know, the whole question is how Ukrainians will use this knowledge, there are enough instructors from the USA, Poland, Sweden, even the Baltic states. It’s time and Russian instructors to send to Ireland, to rock Scotland ...

    The fourth year we observe how Ukrainians are arming and preparing for a throw at Russia. Thanks to Vovan - they managed to grab Crimean dachas, but they threw Donbass about Novorosia and hastened to write the junta with the best choice of the Ukrainian people. Yes ... They’ll not feed 300 coulters just like that - now it’s not 000 and the alignment of forces is changing.

        Time is lost for Russia, now we can’t do with little blood. Meanwhile, in 14g. everything was much simpler, but the Kremlin stratritsa and sitters saved their capitals transported to the west, but, as recent years have shown, not all capitals were saved, and sanctions were not passed.

              Otherwise, the opposition would have taken it to the extreme - from every iron would have rushed "our children are dying because of Putin."
              Win there to lose in your own home, this is the worst choice as a result of which the meaning of victory will be completely lost.
              Therefore, Ukrainians should freak out first. Need to wait.

                Yes, this would not be anything, the Ukrainians had no more than 5000 combat-ready people in the army, the National Bats didn’t count. And it was enough to return the Azarov’s government in exile to Kiev, Yanukovych was still the president ... Khokhlov, after all, only went to the Donbass when they realized that there would be no opposition from the Russian Federation and they would have been blown to the very Rostov border if it weren’t for Igor Ivanovich. .. There is nothing to say about the moods of the population in the southeast of then-Ukraine, they did not yet lose their relatives and friends in this war, later called up to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and were generally favorably disposed towards Russia, which cannot be said now.

                    Igor Ivanovich did not screw, but was recalled because he did not screw on time and completely, and then the Kremlin decided to use these pieces of oblasts as a bargaining chip, but it didn’t work out. If the VSUshniki had dopped to the border, then the DNI and LPR would not would already exist.

    The British, of course, will always support those who are trying to create problems for Russia. At the same time, they are not eager to fight with our country on their own or with the support of NATO. Dragging chestnuts out of the fire with someone else's hands is a long-tried "fun" of the Anglo-Saxons, and it also brings dividends.
    statement by the secretary of defense Gavina Williamsonа
    This nimble minister has already talked so much about Russia after his appointment that they already make fun of him in England itself.

    that in the person of Great Britain Ukraine has a reliable partner who will provide assistance to the Ukrainian army

    Only while Ukraine (its top, it is important) is against Russia, then yes, friends forever.
    As soon as the brotherly people of Ukraine turn to the East, friendship will abruptly stop ... Any Poroshenko and K will flee, there will be the people of Ukraine who will be able to disentangle all this with the people of Russia.
    The point is small: bring the inhabitants of Ukraine to life and rebuff the Bandera junta.
    And we will support, I have no doubt.

            Who shouted Muscovites to knives, before the annexation of Crimea, who shouted and where? There may be some separate marginals! Mostly people came out against Yanukovych.

            The president escaped, self-relieved of duties, in which case, by law, the speaker became acting President, Parliament self-dissolved, scheduled early elections for the president and Parliament. De jure, everything is legal, constitutional.

              At that time, Yanukovych satisfied all the wishes of the opposition, the appetite came with a meal fellow Are you the right sector, you call individual marginals? laughing

              He didn’t eliminate himself from anything, it was the laws of Ukraine that ceased to protect his president. What law can we talk about if the opposition gave the Rada time until 10 am on February 22 to remove the president from power? Constitution of Ukraine provides for a violent change of government? Seriously?

                The constitution can be interpreted so differently that many never dreamed of it. After the shooting of people, this whole pack of crap and dumped who where, realizing that they were already just criminals. The main thing is that there was no seizure by some military, or a dictator, democratic elections were immediately appointed. But we started from another, I wonder, according to what international law Russia took away its territory from the country? International law can also be interpreted in different ways, but these are far-fetched reasons, as well as "the Bandera punishers traveling in buses", Ukraine would be a fraternal country for the Russian Federation, Russia would not take its territory from it. This is how it turns out, they said for so many years, NATO is an enemy, Milosevic's quotes were attached, and in the end, whoever turned out to be an enemy, if Ukraine joined NATO back in 2008, they would live happily ever after and no one would dare take the land.

        And by the way, it is not known which parties would have won the elections, if the elections were not held at the time of the annexation of Crimea and the support of the "supporters" with weapons, maybe then completely different forces would have won, you yourself put all the cards in your opponents' hands, it is clear that in such situation for the pro-Russian parties, no one began to vote.
