Five out of 14 detained Ukrainians from the French Foreign Legion deserted in order to fight on the territory of Ukraine

39

From France comes information about the detention of 14 soldiers of the so-called Foreign Legion. We are talking about the French military of Ukrainian origin. At one time, they joined the ranks of this combat French unit in order to obtain French citizenship. So the detained Ukrainians are still in this legion, they have not yet received the cherished passports of citizens of France.

What was the reason for the arrest?

On the French TV channel TF1 it is reported that the Ukrainian police received an orientation for a bus departing for Poland. Sending was carried out from the 12th district of the French capital. The orientation indicated that representatives of the Foreign Legion of the French Armed Forces were going to leave the country in order to join the armed forces of Ukraine on Ukrainian territory.

The police decided to remove all passengers from the international bus flight. This is a total of 30 people. After checking all the data, 16 people were released.

And 14 representatives of the Foreign Legion were transferred to the command. It turned out that 5 of them deserted from the military unit, deciding to fight "for Ukraine". 9 others detained by the police earlier, as it turned out, wrote applications for a short-term, two-week vacation. They were also going to participate in hostilities after crossing the Polish-Ukrainian border. This fact was allegedly hidden from the command.

The Foreign French Legion is a special formation of the armed forces of France, consisting, as its name suggests, of foreigners. Often the soldiers of this legion are sent to carry out operations outside of France. One such operation is in Mali. But recently, France has been withdrawing its contingent from there.

    . The military live / serve according to the charters ... all politicians talk to them to the lantern ... until the appropriate orders are given, based on some procedures that no one bothered to carry out through the authorities.
    In general, from just chatter to the real thing, your own way, which politicians DO NOT LIKE to subscribe to.

      They are mercenaries and many with a criminal past .. There, as far as I know, any politics, nationality is not advertised, etc. harshly suppressed, in the course of these, an unenviable fate awaits (they violated the contract)

        Let me disagree with you: FIL is not considered “mercenaries”, among the mercenaries there are many who served in FIL ..
        I read about it, but while looking for a link, a fun piece of information popped up
        According to Ukrinform, the Center for Counteracting Disinformation under the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine reports this on Telegram.
        "The CPD under the National Security and Defense Council confirms the fact that Ukrainians from the French Foreign Legion will be able to leave for Ukraine in full combat gear," the report says.
        I'm still wildly sorry, but in the country of 404 there is a massive clouding of reason? Ahhh, I realized - for a very long time lol I'm sorry, but to talk about this seriously is ridiculous.

        With a criminal past, they have not been taken to the Legion for a long time, selection as in a decent VU, 15 per place. Although the roads for everyone there are different ... And they are not mercenaries at all, but employees under contract in the French Armed Forces. There is a true rumor that after the contract, some get a job in various PMCs ... or security structures. By the way, their commander gave leave permission for former citizens of Ukraine so that they could take their families to France, the Legion is going to place them in its own structure ..

    Legion by legion. It is necessary to monitor the trends in the use of the labile human resource accumulated in Europe from the number of migrants-refugees and their movement across countries.

    It’s interesting, but something is “our gastro-workers” from Ukraine, something is not heard .. Why do they work silently and do not express any relation to this military operation?
    After all, we have over 5 million of them. "Garny lads and girls" .. They are somehow controlled, they have a conversation with them, etc. ?

      This does not concern them. In the same way as the shelling of the Donbass did not concern the people of Kiev. I think you are not very worried about the events in Yemen

        It concerns when they are sitting at a dinner, actively discussing (in Ukrainian) and even raising their voices in the heat of the moment. But when one of ours comes in, they immediately fall silent, and if they speak it is exclusively in Russian. They have zero credibility in general.

    French TV channel TF1 reports that Ukrainian police received orientation

    The police decided to remove all passengers from the international bus flight.

    They were also going to participate in the fighting after crossing the Polish-Ukrainian border.

    So which police removed the passengers - French, Polish or Ukrainian? And where was it filmed? Completely incomprehensible note. Most likely filmed in France.

          I will answer. The French Foreign Legion was sent to fight in Iraq (example) 5 of them, they sent command to zyx, deciding to go to Ukraine. More or less like this.

      Most likely there, such people are strictly monitored by contract and do not stand on ceremony
      There they sign a bunch of receipts of all sorts and are very tough. Survivors receive citizenship and new surnames
      They start chatting negative
      PS It’s difficult to serve Russians there with their mentality .. If only scumbags or sick people in the head

        The son of my friend in the early 90s studied on an exchange in France, for some reason I did not understand, he went to serve in the Foreign Legion, but he spent all the time of his service in French Guiana, guarding the cosmodrome in Kourou. Since he was a musical person, he was in charge of the De Gaulle (I almost wrote Lenin) room. He served there and returned to Russia.

          Interestingly, your friend was lucky ... Probably this happens in the legion, but rarely sure ...
          Although the French were kicked out of many colonies .. And these "legions" are not so cool wink

    That's just not necessary. The command understood everything perfectly. Apparently the Foreign Ministry was afraid at the last moment.
