British Defense Minister: In the event of an aggravation of the situation in Ukraine, we will promptly and safely evacuate our military from there

77

Already the British Ministry of Defense makes it clear that it is not going to fight for Ukraine and in Ukraine with its own servicemen. A statement in more florid wording was made by the head of the United Kingdom's military department, Ben Wallace.


According to the British minister, London is ready to evacuate "all its servicemen from the territory of Ukraine in the event of an aggravation of the situation and the transition of an armed conflict to an acute phase." At the same time, Wallace said that at the moment on the Ukrainian territory from the British military there are mainly military instructors stationed in one of the military units in the area of ​​the Yavoriv training ground.

According to the General Staff of the British Army, there are "several dozen British troops" in Ukraine:

A small group of our military instructors in case of aggravation of the situation will be sent to Poland from the territory of Ukraine.

It was noted that this will be carried out after the order of the head of the Joint Operations Directorate of the British Army, General Charles Strickland. According to the British press, Strickland's department "is closely watching the situation in Ukraine."

According to British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, he still hopes that there will be no escalation, but at the same time adds that if it happens, "the British military contingent will be withdrawn quickly and safely."

At the same time, London does not comment on the information that not only officers from among the instructors are in Ukraine, but also representatives of special operations forces and, possibly, fighters from NATO PMCs. In this regard, the question arises (primarily for Ukraine): will London also evacuate them in the event of the outbreak of hostilities, or is the British command cunning?

        No matter how much I tried to find the answer, I could not. Why did Hitler give an order, and even unencrypted, so that the British could read it, not to approach Dunkirk closer than 10 kilometers and not to use tanks? Why didn't he give the order to drop the "heroes" into the English Channel, and instead watched them heroically skimp for 9 (nine, Karl!) Days? The only thing is the Hollywood movie of the same name with three "Oscars" - everything is told there. But learning history from Hollywood movies is like predicting the weather from my shepherd's snoring.

          Everything is simple and boring - on the one hand, it was an offer to peace ("and we divide the world to hit !!"), on the other hand, the Wehrmacht was stupidly exhausted by this moment - the resource of tanks, ammo, fuel, extended communications, etc.
          In addition, Hitler clearly did not want unnecessary losses in the Wehrmacht - even a hare can rush. And then all the same, troops with weapons and tanks. And so they rushed to save themselves - leaving everything ...

            even a hare can rush

            My partner is the son of a forester. They have a lot of things in the yard and
            who was - tortured, grunting, grunting. Somehow the father of the hare brought
            gram 200, planted for rabbits. Grew, grew, bunny, ate from his hands every day,
            until I reached half a meter. And once the forester came to feed them -
            he opens the door to the cage - someone with a carrot, someone with a senza. A hare flies out -
            blow with hind legs in the chest - a healthy man falls on w ... ny, in one
            jumping the hare flies over the fence 1,5 meters and only saw him-
            went to the forest, home.

            lol Well, forecasters lie several times every day. And my shepherd dog snores two or three times a month when he gets tired of the "worries" around the house. For example, when there are many guests. She is the main keeper of the house - this is to sniff everyone, to control everyone ... In general, she snores from such worries afterwards. Using it to predict the weather - it's better to let the forecasters lie.

        And why would "Good Old England" by the presence of its troops bring the situation in Ukraine to the point of aggravation with Russia?
        These are all excuses from Britain, aimed at delaying the aggravation of NATO in Ukraine with Russia on the principle of "neither ours, nor yours"!

        Russia told NATO the face of Putin to immediately withdraw foreign troops from the territory of Ukraine!
        So why is Britain trying to blather Russia's demand for the immediate withdrawal of foreign troops from the territory of Ukraine, hiding its rejection from the public and from Russia with its similar ambiguous excuses ?!
        Russia will not agree to this. Such demands of Russia to NATO are not for fun!

            Among other things, according to TASS, Maria Zakharova announced that Russia urged UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to bring the United States to justice and launch an arbitration tribunal due to delays in the issuance of visas and the seizure of Russian diplomatic property.

            The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that the United States is in breach of its obligations under the agreement on the UN headquarters and impedes the work of a number of delegations in the organization.
            “Mr. Guterres is required, as the guarantor of the 1947 agreements, to immediately take practical steps to officially launch the arbitration procedure against the United States,” the diplomat said.

        Why would they? What will they get as a result - Ukraine as a vassal of Russia, or in general as part of the Russian Federation. What we have today is quite suitable for the United States and NATO. Time passes, the generation changes, the abyss widens. They can calmly wait for the right moment to use this trump card.
        And the "iron curtain" is not visible from our side. Obviously, they do not care about old age in the Penza region. And they do not dream of a palace near Beijing.
        Too much ringing around the ultimatum. It is built so that everything remains "as is". So it plays into the hands of the adversaries.

    They are generally friends with their heads, why does Russia need a poor Ukraine, where the population is 1/3 of the population of Russia ?!
    What, they don't want to feed themselves anymore?
    So they are trying to attach this walking girl to someone, but there will not be enough money to treat her, it is easier to bury it as it is.

    In the event of an aggravation of the situation on Ukraine

    Even the British Defense Minister speaks correctly *
    At the same time, it is a shame that some of ours in this regard, aggressive propaganda from the Independence was able to zombify a little.


    * - it's sarcasm

    A small group of our military instructors in case of aggravation of the situation will be sent to Poland from the territory of Ukraine.

    Translated into Russian: when the point starts to crackle, we have time to merge in time.

    Not understood? What are these British statements?! As it is, in the event of an aggravation of the situation, the military contingent of Britain will be withdrawn quickly and safely. And who will fight? Who will defend the Independent? The Canadians have flown away, the Americans are evacuating, the Spaniards, the Portuguese, the Italians, the Greeks, the Germans, and a dozen more have said that in general they can not be addressed with such a request. Is this how it turns out? Should the Ukrainians themselves fight? So they have already been fighting for 8 years, holding back the onslaught of the aggressor. And if he moves his hordes all into the bushes, and Ukraine takes the rap alone? But what about all the assurances that #verysnami?!
