The American magazine named three categories of mercenaries fighting against the Russian army in Ukraine

The Russian special operation in Ukraine led to the fact that foreigners rushed to this country wishing to join the Armed Forces of Ukraine and "fight against Russian aggression." All foreigners in Russia were recorded in the category of simple mercenaries, but in reality this is not the case, writes Military Watch Magazine.


As the author of an article for an American magazine writes, foreigners fighting against the Russian army in Ukraine fall into three categories and perform various tasks in this conflict. The first category includes career military or intelligence officers sent to Ukraine to perform certain tasks, their role in hostilities is very extensive and depends on the orders received. The share of such "soldiers of fortune" in the total mass of mercenaries is not large.

The second category is mercenaries from various countries who are not regular military personnel. These may be retired military personnel, employees of various PMCs, etc., who arrived in Ukraine to earn money. They make up the bulk of the mercenaries, fight in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and suffer the main losses.

The third category is foreigners who arrived in Ukraine for ideological reasons. Their share in the total mass is also small, but there are more of them than regular military personnel. The bulk of these militants are from the former Soviet Union, who have set themselves the task of fighting Russia by all means. As an example, the author cites the Georgian national legion, which includes not only ethnic Georgians, but also the British, as well as mercenaries from other countries. Their task is the destruction of Russia as a state.

It is worth noting that the largest number of mercenaries came to Ukraine from Poland, of course, the biggest losses are again among the Polish mercenaries. According to the Polish press, among those who went to Ukraine there are a fairly large number of military personnel, so to speak, "vacationers" who are not eager to die for Zelensky, but solve their own problems.

            This time he will catch his personal mine. Rarely does the Lord give such a chance by removing from the scaffold to rethink life. Didn't realize.

          The question is, why take him prisoner? We will sing our own anthem.

        What kind of a reporter is he, he, like all mercenaries, is a killer, and a reporter is an unsubscribe for a British layman. Come back and do what he did.

      Well, a half-dead one is also acceptable, it is unlikely that it will climb again later, although for ideological Russophobes it is desirable to exclude such a category.

        bukhach, yeah, well, here on the site about the dead Yankees they wrote like this everyone (if I'm not mistaken) had injuries before death and everyone returned, this Briton was sitting under the tower, he was released, he will soon return as a type of journalist, only he has a camera there will be a machine gun on the helmet and in the hands.

      There should be no mercenaries at all. I remember that after the strike on the Yavoriv training ground, we were told that the mercenaries were partly destroyed, and partly fled in horror. There were even videos where the surviving "gray geese" were crying and saying that they never set foot on Ukraine again. And now it turns out that mercenaries are almost the main fighting force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    How long I live and now I can’t understand how Russia could annoy the Georgians, Tajiks, and Balts so much.
    Who were they all before the October Revolution, were they not even on the map?

      This is exactly what they will never forgive us.
      The same Georgians will never forgive Russia for saving them from complete annihilation in the 18th century.

      All the time of the USSR, these republics were subsidized, Ukraine produced products for 20 rubles, spent 30 rubles. Georgia produced products for 10 rubles, spent 30 rubles, it was cooler only in the Baltics.

            You did not take into account that in terms of production and population, the RSFSR was larger than Georgia, the Baltic states and other Central Asian republics.

      As for Georgia, in the USSR it was the most subsidized republic of all the union republics, so, having lost the trough, they simply sold out to the West. But the Ukrainian SSR and the BSSR were in surplus .. they just disposed of their "self-sufficiency" in different ways.

        You don't have to donate anything. How the US does it. And it turns out that everyone owes them, not they.
        And now the old mistakes are being repeated again. We forgive everything to Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Cuba, Kazakhstan .... And after forgiveness they don’t remember anything.

    I hope all three categories will go to the black soil, there are already many of them, they have accumulated for hundreds of years, tons and generations.
    Alas, nothing teaches the greedy geyropa, they carefully turn history in their direction and again and again go to fertilizer.

    The first category (military experts, probably, in our opinion) is the most dangerous. They teach. But they are also the hardest to eliminate. And it should. Their elimination is hindered by the use of modern APU technology.

    In the era of globalization, it is not Ukraine that is fighting and not the Armed Forces of Ukraine with some mercenaries. Everyone fights for money. And the most greedy are "ideologically motivated". Take away the money - no one will go to war.
    Two things are needed for a war: money and more money.
    Where is the money?
    From the nightstand.
