Americans wounded in Ukraine began to arrive at a US Army hospital in Germany
Recently, the American Army hospital in the city of Landstuhl in Germany began to accept those wounded in the fighting in Ukraine. The American edition of The New York Times writes about this.
There are currently 14 people in the medical facility, most of them Americans. According to the American press, this indicates Washington’s growing involvement in the Ukrainian armed conflict.
The publication claims that now hundreds of US citizens are participating in the armed conflict in Ukraine as part of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Several hundred people are still in Ukraine. Approximately 20 Americans died during the fighting, although this is a very tentative figure. As for the number of wounded, it is unknown even to American publications.
However, foreign mercenaries took an active part in it from the very beginning of the conflict. However, now we can talk about regular military personnel participating in hostilities. The large amount of Western-made military equipment transferred to Kyiv one way or another requires the presence of appropriate professionals for operation and maintenance. It is unlikely that the maintenance of the equipment is entirely in the hands of the Ukrainian military, who have completed month-long courses in NATO countries.
Earlier it became known that American experts are calling for military advisers from the United States to be sent to Ukraine. Therefore, it can be assumed that the number of US citizens admitted to American hospitals who were injured in the fighting in Ukraine, if this decision is made, will increase even more significantly.
