Spain has started training Ukrainian troops on its territory

Spain has launched a training program for Ukrainian military personnel. Training is carried out on the territory of Spain in Zaragoza. This is stated in the message of the Spanish Ministry of Defense.


Spain will train twenty Ukrainian servicemen in the handling of Western weapons supplied to Ukraine, the Spanish military refuse to disclose more accurate information. It is also unknown how much time will be allotted for training, whether other groups will be recruited, or everything will be limited to these 20 military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who pulled out their lucky ticket to visit Spain in the midst of hostilities. A group of Ukrainian military has already arrived in Spain, training started today, that is, on September 19th.

Spanish troops are training Ukrainian soldiers from this Monday

- the message of the Ministry of Defense of Spain says.

Earlier in Madrid, they announced that they were preparing to launch their own training program for Ukrainian military personnel, similar to the British one. But if military instructors from several countries train more than 10 thousand soldiers for the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the territory of the United Kingdom, then Spain somehow does not look good with the training of 20 soldiers.

Earlier it was reported that the training program will include medical training, engineering, tactics, etc. It is planned that the process will use the transport and equipment of the Spanish army, but small arms and other weapon will correspond to what the APU applies, i.e. something from a family of clones of Kalashnikov assault rifles.

The Spanish Ministry of Defense stressed that they have rich experience in training foreign military personnel, Spanish instructors trained military personnel of the armies of Afghanistan, Iraq and Mali. They will also prepare for the Ukrainian army.

      probably so as not to make serious experts laugh .... "Spanish military training" is something mythical like "British scientists" and to react to this is to sink to the level of joking with fools.

        You have now called all Western diplomacy fools. This is such a modern world trend in politics: to carry nonsense.
        Well, for example: the Russian Federation occupies all of Antarctica, because the penguins threaten to destroy the Russian people. You can come up with something more elaborate. Cans, Macaroni, Lizka from Trassa and other schulzes can carry nonsense, but Lavrov only concerns?

            Well, what can I say .... It's a pity for those guys who laid down their lives for Spain in the 30s of the last century. They could be useful in the USSR.
            But preparation 20!!! military personnel, so no one has yet whipped on the cheeks of Ukrainians laughing

    maybe Spain wants something else? On your territory.
    And what was the minus? It seems to me that Spain, by its behavior, just wants the separation of the Basques and Catalonia and border disputes with Portugal. Well, she really wants to, otherwise she apparently has nothing to do at all.

    Well, now calculate how much it will cost us to lose the pace of the offensive and switch to passive defense? Over the winter, NATO members will train and arm more than tens of thousands of fighters from Ukraine, and not poorly armed and motivated, do not believe the stories of TV storytellers that only drug addicts and students serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the tactics are simple to the primitive, first meat semi-finished products go to the breakthrough, then having exhausted the few defenses of the Russian army, guided by American intelligence, combat-ready units go, after a breakthrough, they roll back to the rear and Ukrainian meat is again exposed to attack, and these are being prepared for the next sector of the front. Only by intercepting the initiative can you impose your tactics on them, but here, as I understand it, the forces of the ground units are now sorely lacking.

      It seems that if the issue had been in force, then it would have been resolved in some other way than by Prigozhin's trips to the zones and proposals in the State Duma on the introduction of academic leave for students participating in the SVO. I am sure that the state has enough other legal mechanisms for building up and using military force. And since they have not been used for 7 months, then we should not talk about their lack.

      This is not true. Their tactics are very advanced.
      And there are no "meat semi-finished products" now.
      Poorly trained infantry - terrorist defense - the Armed Forces of Ukraine had in the first months.
      Now the trained mechanized units are moving forward. They pass through the defenses of the Russian army at the junctions between units without suffering heavy losses.

          Spaniards - nowhere.
          I didn't write about them.
          And about studying in England.
          English instructors are the best in infantry training.
          Better than American.
          And there will be no full-length attacks.

      As the beginning of the third world. Let's look at things sensibly, they can train and arm anyone on their territory, but why don't we create training centers on our territory and don't finance the Basques? In the days of the USSR, all liberation movements were actively supported, in each country there were armed workers' parties supported by us, in the same Ulster it was fun and Britain was not quite up to us, in the USA there were blacks, sorry African Americans were buzzing, in France hippies ...... .

        Another question about the same as yours.
        But they, trained, from Europe through the territory of Ukraine do not seep into the war zone one or two at a time. And the places of their arrival in Ukraine, and the places of formation of formations in Western Ukraine, and the routes of movement to the East, I think, are not a secret for our intelligence. So why there, hundreds of kilometers from the Donbass, in Lvov or Vinnitsa, not smash them to pieces? So that in the West, sooner or later they will understand - cook - don't cook, but it's all the same in vain.

        Sometimes messages about strikes slip through, but somehow hesitantly and so, to scare. "Barracks destroyed", "up to ten mercenaries destroyed". And where were "bridges destroyed", "airfields destroyed", "technical concentration points destroyed"?
        In Zaporozhye, the Dnieper Hydroelectric Power Station was blown up in 41 so that the Germans would not get it, and here we are shaking for every bridge across the river - "we have to restore it later ..."

      PS although 20 fighters is a platoon of strength. maybe just castanetos cover their asses - like, well, we are training. yes, not much, but how much we can

    Spain has started training Ukrainian troops on its territory
    . The professor, who looks at the world, expressed the following thesis - the loss of personnel, command staff, the Armed Forces of Ukraine is great and it will not be possible to quickly replenish them.
    In principle, putting a sergeant in command of something more than a platoon is not ice. It is possible to refer to the fact that the evil army is "mso", and the white sahib will be in command!? but we still have to get to that ... although such a possibility is not excluded.
    In general, we will see how events develop further.
    By the way, he has long been expressing the thesis that our Armed Forces need, not reorganization, as such, we need to change the status of the military so that we don’t have 500 and those who give up everything to save their worthless lives !!!

        Who needs to be trained a lot and even more, this is the command staff and instructors / sergeants for training the rank and file.
        Those. national military cadres, professionals ... or finally go under the command of the "white sahib".
        The impudent, and some others, have such experience, although it has long been impossible to call it successful.

    Any training, even among the Spaniards who have not really fought anywhere for 300 years, can benefit the students. I don’t understand why reservists and youth are not trained in the LPR and DPR, instead they are gathered en masse along the streets and enterprises, and sent to the front line like cannon fodder? Even 2-3 weeks in training will give an understanding of when you don’t need to stick your head out of the trench, listen to the commander’s orders and how to use shelters.
