Former Ukrainian prisoners are being trained at British training grounds

While some EU countries have just agreed to open military training courses for Ukrainians, in the UK the process of training militants for the Armed Forces of Ukraine has already been put on stream. The British news agency British's Forces News published a report on how seven thousand Ukrainian recruits are being trained at the base of the British army in the north of England. Among the Ukrainians there are former prisoners.


But this is not the main thing. Attentive viewers noticed that a Ukrainian was in one of the frames of the report, on whose uniform a chevron was sewn with the symbols of one of the most cruel punitive SS units. This is a symbol of belonging to the 36th Grenadier Division under the command of Oskar Dirlewanger, where the recruitment was exclusively from prisoners of German colonies, concentration camps and SS military prisons. According to European politicians, there are no Nazis in Ukraine... They are now training in Britain...

As for the learning process itself. The British train their own recruits in military skills for three months. For future fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, five weeks have recently been allotted. And this despite the fact that the British military themselves complain about the low level of skills of the Ukrainians who arrived and the rather average success in learning.

The first batches of recruits from Ukraine in the amount of 10 fighters arrived at British training grounds in June. The training courses are based on the basic British infantry training program and NATO tactical standards. It includes first aid skills on the battlefield, handling weapons, patrol order, as well as tactical behavior in the combat zone. According to the Sky News channel, the Ukrainian military is trained, among other things, by instructors from other countries: Denmark, Norway, Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, New Zealand and Lithuania.

There is no exact information on how many Ukrainians were trained at training grounds in Britain and how many are training now.

Back in the summer, one of the captured soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that he went to study in England in order to go abroad for the first time in his life. At a three-week course, he managed to shoot 500 rounds of ammunition from a Kalashnikov assault rifle and take a theoretical course in sapper and mine-explosives. The training was conducted in English, with instructors most often communicated non-verbally.

    based in the British Army in the north of England.
    Apparently, the Catterick garrison army base is the largest in Britain, where, incl., they train their recruits.

    Prisoners, disconnected ... what's the difference now. They are now being trained for war with us, and the results of the battles in the fall show that the level of training of the "graduates" of these courses in England is quite high. It is necessary for our intelligence to track their arrival on the territory of Ukraine and their places of concentration in order to begin to "calibrate" even before they arrive at the LBS

      I would also like our armchair generals to start training our mobilized not according to reports on paper, but real training. Now there are a lot of officers who retired due to injury / injury. Why are they not involved in the training of mobs?

      Don't say gop until you jump over. Old Russian proverb. Here in the VO in the summer they literally broadcast that the Armed Forces did not have the strength to attack.

        And how can you shut up the squealers? They have such a planid, screech ...
        I prefer to listen, read, people who can objectively assess the situation ..
        We don’t have so many of them, they are not in favor, they were, and even now they look askance at them, like, they croaked ... and they just spoke / they say as they are, and not as someone wants to hear.
        So sho ... I didn’t believe that everything would be so easy and simple, I didn’t write about it, I didn’t shout urya, urya ...
        By the way, at the expense of the ditch ... this is an objective reality, nothing more ... many will not be so lucky that there will be nothing to collect into the ditch.
        Everything is hard, bloody, sad.

          It's not in my rules to shout urya for no reason. And only because of this that I objected to the patriots I have 7 warnings and was banned twice. Personally, my opinion: If we are already involved in this, then we need to bring it to the end.

        Who broadcast? Here Strelkov constantly repeated in the summer: "Ukrov reserves are being prepared, time is not playing on us."

          Not only Strelkov... for many, a strange operation and many other similar things made them want to ask and ASK again!
          But no one listened to them, and even more so, they did not allow them to the main ear ...
          They are even now ... if they don’t force them to keep quiet, but they don’t invite them anywhere.
          This is our reality, unfortunately.
          The truth comes with great difficulty, makes its way into the zone of attention of the upper and the public.
          However, we are no exception, in the whole wide world, and this is the misfortune of the entire human society.

            The main ear has been talking about mistakes since 2014. Good trend, there will be changes.

              There is no particular optimism, but we will see ...

          And who believed him? We all know the outcome. Strelkov is not as stupid as they want to expose him.

    Fine. Roll up to the Britons, "talk non-verbally" and shoot almost 17 "stores" from almost native "Kalash". He’s lying, it’s good that he didn’t study as a cook or a wagon driver.

    in the UK, the process of training militants for the Armed Forces of Ukraine has already been put on stream. For future fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, five weeks have recently been allotted.

    Putin. October 14. He said that 16 thousand are already performing combat missions. The mobilized undergo primary training in units - from 5 to 10 days, followed by training in a combat unit from 5 to 15 days. Then they go to war. Everything!...
    and "training in the combat unit" is generally a masterpiece ... :)
    so who is there "does not protect his people"?

      As I understand it, these 16 thousand are from among the volunteers, and not from the mobilized, therefore they were equalized in rights and state guarantees with the status of a participant in b / actions. winked

    Are you sure there's no one there?
    Yes exactly! Run already, it's training.
    Yes, it's scary.
    What's scary then? Forward!

    Well, what did you want?
    Fools are few.
    Militants from criminals for PMC Wagner (despite its illegality in Russia) have also been preparing for a long time.
    And some militants, photos are on the net, with tattoos and even neo-Nazi ones ...

        It's clear: now I will check: how a resident of Volgograd became a Ukrainian prisoner who got to study with the British military.
