The US Department of Defense named the number of Ukrainian troops trained in the West

At present, more than 7 servicemen of the armed forces of Ukraine have already been trained by US military instructors. This was stated in the Pentagon, commenting on the preparation of the Kyiv regime for the upcoming counteroffensive.

In addition, more than 26 Ukrainian military personnel were trained in 11 countries of the Western coalition. Thus, the total number of soldiers, sergeants and officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine trained in the West is more than 18 thousand people. Training is carried out in a variety of areas - it can be snipers, and artillerymen, and tankers, and reconnaissance saboteurs. They are trained in numerous training centers located in Europe.



As stated in the White House, NATO intends to provide Ukraine with everything necessary for the previously announced counteroffensive. At the meeting of NATO defense ministers, which will be held April 5-6, the focus will be on the Ukrainian armed conflict and issues of further military assistance to Ukraine.

The West is making a very big bet on the spring counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Earlier, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said that the counteroffensive could begin in April-May 2023, when the weather conditions are suitable for it. Now the slush on the roads prevents the passage of powerful military equipment.

However, many analysts tend to believe that hopes for the success of the counteroffensive are exaggerated: Ukraine does not have the necessary resources in the form of weapons and personnel to count on unequivocal success in any areas.

    Whom they just did not train. And yet all these students did poorly. It's one thing to fly bomb with impunity, it's another thing to fight on the ground. And the ground forces of the mattresses themselves, with much better equipment and support, did not show anything outstanding. Nowhere and never.

      18000 people prepared the countries of the Western coalition for a rather long time. And what? Every month now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are losing so many fighters.

      Yes exactly. And the Banderists themselves can teach European instructors. Who and what can be taught by 26 countries that have never taken part in conflicts of such high intensity?

        18 thousand are lost every month, and the front has not been moving noticeably anywhere except for Artemovsk for the 7th month. Absolutely amazing! Do you believe in it yourself?

    However, many analysts believe that hopes for a successful counter-offensive are exaggerated: Ukraine does not have the necessary resources in the form of weapons and personnel to count on unambiguous success in any field.


    There is nothing better than analysts waging war from their seats. Let someone tell them, for example, about Izyum. In addition, the Ukrainian army, which is very weak and incapable of an offensive, can always count on some gestures of “good will” from our command, and so far our analysts somehow forget to take such actions into account.

    Many specialists have been trained, but in fact - only infantry (meat) is needed in the trenches.

    18 thousand at first glance, the figure is impressive. If the US Defense Ministry calculated how many of this number have already been destroyed and taken prisoner, then we can make an analysis of the quality of Western training.

    I heard that in the West, one of the main topics of training is the tactics and strategy of surrender.

      And where do they teach the tactics and strategy of surrendering Kherson, Kupyansk, Izyum, Balakleya?

    Well, Balakleya and Raisins should no longer be, preparations are in full swing to meet the enemy. This time the lines of defense are being prepared, the fortifications are being built, the equipment is being buried. So the Ukrainians will not have an easy walk, they will be met as expected.
    We are waiting ...

    Almost the same number of "ZSU and NGU warriors" are in our captivity ... Coincidence? ....

    An interesting question: where did those tens of thousands of Western-trained ukrovoynye who participated in the Kherson and Kharkov offensives go? Are they disposable, perhaps, designed exclusively for one offensive?
