To hire mercenaries in Ukraine? ..

41
Protection of the new self-proclaimed government of Ukraine, it seems, cannot do without financial and even military support from the West. Increasingly, there is information that foreign mercenaries arrive in Kiev, representing private security companies (private military companies). Information agencies are already talking about hundreds of foreign mercenaries who come in separate groups to Kiev airport. Why come? Well, certainly not to admire the sights of Kiev ...


Today, there are several hundred private military companies in the world whose hands, for obvious reasons, are not bound by any conventions or other international obligations. In fact, these are groups that today may act on one side of the conflict for one or another sum, and tomorrow, if someone pays more, they will take a completely different side without a twinge of conscience. So far the United States itself pays more, and therefore the direction of activity of these firms is understandable.

One of the most active PMCs recently are the American organizations Blackwater (aka Xe Services LLC since 2010), Armor Group, several British mercenary structures. De jure, these structures are not subordinate to the authorities, have no relation to the state interests of a particular state. But de facto, it's not at all like that. There were quite a few episodes when the same Blackwater PMC operated with the actual support of the White House and the US State Department. As the saying goes, “whoever pays a girl is the one who dances her.” And this girl, who is so fond of gray-green bills, now seems to want to prove herself on the territory of Ukraine (at least ...



As it turns out, not only wants, but already manifests itself. "On the eve of the", referring to the expert opinion of a high-ranking employee of the Kiev division of "Alpha" reports that the American mercenaries have already performed several operations on the territory of Ukraine. One of such operations is the detention of the people's governor of the Donetsk region Pavel Gubarev. An employee of the Alpha unit himself stated that the special services of Ukraine had nothing to do with the detention of Gubarev. The same source reports that, with a high probability, the operation against Pavel Gubarev was carried out by the officers of the Blackwater security complex.

After the arrest, Gubarev ended up in Kiev, where the case against him was about almost all mortal sins: from calls for separatism to the deployment of anti-state propaganda and cooperation with foreign intelligence services. The last point especially "touches" in connection with those who helped to detain Pavel Gubarev with the new Ukrainian "authorities" ...

Meanwhile, the Kiev Shevchenko Court issued a decision on keeping Gubarev in custody for a term of 2 month. After some time, Pavel Gubarev decided to release on bail in the amount of about 97,5 thousand hryvnia. According to some reports, Gubarev may get out of custody on Tuesday 11 March 2014, although this information is not yet confirmed.
So, on the territory of Ukraine, a considerable number of mercenaries are now operating with funds from the United States of America that solve tasks consistent with the interests of the United States of America itself. Let's not forget that the mercenary groups include professionals, most of whom are former employees of Western power structures, military units performing operations in various parts of the planet.

In order to more precisely understand what functions modern western PMCs assume upon themselves, you can look at the site of one of them, Xe Services LLC, which is also Academi. Recall that this is the Blackwater company that replaced the sign in connection with a series of international scandals over the atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On the Online This company has several newsletters telling what kind of “whims for your money” are ready to be performed by its employees. We enter the section "Commercial Services".

It reads:

Threats today appear in countless ways. When an event occurs that causes harm, chaos, and destruction, the costs for recovery can be unpredictable. Important infrastructure facilities and commercial activities are increasingly becoming targets of opponents. Academi provides risk assessment services to institutions based on the preparation of armed guards for commercial clients around the world.


Translating all this from a commercial-advertising language is not universal, it turns out that the company seems to make it clear that today it can reliably protect infrastructure and commercial facilities. It would seem, nothing strange - the usual chop in American. But only this “PSC” has at its disposal not only rubber truncheons and walkie-talkies, like the average private security guards in Russia or Ukraine, but whole arsenals. This is a small weapon, light armored vehicles, military aviation (including UAVs), systems for the destruction of the manpower of a potential enemy, armor. The company used all these funds (then still under the guise of “Blackwater”) in full on the territory of Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya and other countries. Practically not a single military conflict of recent times was complete without the use of mercenaries, among whom the “academics” from Blackwater were especially active. It is interesting that when Academi reflects on the need to defend itself against chaos and destruction, it does not mention that it is chaos and this destruction can be organized by one or two ... The Ukrainian scenario is one example of how PMC employees “helped” Maidan to build a "democracy."

Let us return to the company's online resource, which currently employs at least 20 thousands of people. There is also a section “State services” in which the following is reported:

80000 missions in the most hostile regions on Earth. There is no firm in the world that can better solve Academi issues related to government support when it is busy with security problems.


That is, the hint is transparent. If a government needs to protect its interests, then “our guys” can help it if they gild the handle. It is clear that the new “authorities” of Ukraine have nothing to gild the handle with foreign PMCs, but American friends are of great help in this. Recently, such “help” has been actively involved in the so-called NGOs, which were fairly divorced on the territory of Ukraine. The activities of these NGOs are governed by the old proven US methods - through their own diplomatic missions. If in Russia, political NPOs feeding on Western funds were good at cutting off the wings with the well-known law “On Foreign Agents”, in Ukraine, Mr. Yanukovych could not afford to offend Enkaoshniki fed by the States. I could not ... The result of such weakness we see today.

The use of “independent” mercenaries in Ukraine is extremely beneficial to the States. Indeed, at any time you can say that official Washington has nothing to do with the actions of these individuals. And yet he will be believed ...

By the way, is it possible to send a request to the address of the former “Blackwater” on the topic of how much it would cost their employees to leave Ukraine for their faithful back to the States ... According to some information, for their services when used in one or another part of the world more than 100 employees, this company takes something around 200-220 thousands of dollars a day. Well, since the organization is sold for "real" money, then it is a sin not to use it ...

    The best option is to "soak in the toilet". An accidental accident, a refrigerator falling on the head, food poisoning, a shooting in a dark alley, an explosion in a car - we have seen all this before, under different sauces. A dead mercenary does not receive money, and if he also died not in battle, but xs like, this seriously lowers the morale of the rest.

    To hire mercenaries from other states to assert power on their territory means that no one supports this ruler in their state. It turns out that this gang has no popular support, and will remain in power as long as there is money to pay for the mercenaries.

      Not necessarily, there are more options:
      1. When the rulers simply do not have a contingent of the appropriate level of training.
      2. When it comes to actions that should not be politically associated with the state.
      3. Participation in "black" operations that contradict the legislation of the state.
      4. Actions that are unacceptable to the military personnel from the ethical point of view and discrediting "the honor of the uniform" (punitive, intimidation, etc.)

      5. The desire to avoid casualties among their own military personnel.

Does the author suggest closing this contract for Russian money? So that the fascist junta didn’t strain hard on finances? Well, one PMC will leave, five more will come in its place, then what?

      By the way about them - it is quite possible that they are all just employees of one of the domestic PMCs, and they have leased equipment from the army. Then everyone was right - Russia did not introduce the army -Putin.

    Mercenaries are needed when you can not substitute your own. On the other hand, heroism cannot be expected from them either. Therefore, the Americans fight with their soldiers only where they want to achieve a specific result, which the mercenaries and their allied meat can not achieve.

    ... On the responsibility of foreign citizens participating in illegal armed groups for participating in military and other actions detrimental to the Russian Federation, or for the interests of the Russian Federation, both within the country and on the territory of foreign states.

    ... Recognize foreign citizens participating in illegal armed groups participating in
    combat and other actions detrimental to the Russian Federation, or to the interests of the Russian Federation,

    In fact, these are groups that for one or another amount can speak on one side of the conflict today, and tomorrow, if someone pays more, they will take a completely different side without a twinge of conscience.

    Pretty naive article. The author confuses PMCs with groups of mercenaries in Africa in the middle of the last century, or mercenary armies of medieval Europe. PMC employees still live in the "free world", pay taxes. They will not understand jokes with "borrowing" and will draw conclusions, it will not seem a little. Moreover, all these PMCs only seem to be "private". Without support and approval from the very top, all these PMCs will immediately turn into ZKs. And the fact that they are not bound by rules, treaties and conventions is true, which is why states are going to create such structures. A sort of English "pirates" of the 16th century, driving the Spaniards to the Caribbean, with receiving awards and privileges depending on the results achieved. And after the victory of England, all sorts of left-handed strangers who did not understand that the game was over, without ceremony are hung on the yards.

    an employee of the Alpha unit stated that the Ukrainian special services have nothing to do with the detention of Gubarev. The same source reports that with a high degree of probability the operation against Pavel Gubarev was carried out by the employees of the Blackwater PMC.
    Well, here's the Ukrainian anti-terror group (I can't call it Alpha, the only former subdivision in the post-Soviet space of all republican Alphas that did not maintain relations with others. Svidomo loved more with NATO.) True, in Ukraine they spawned them like dogs that weren't cut, but apart from the persecutions of the gopota, their likeness of the alpha did not differ in anything serious - why the confirmation of the words of some employee ... they have figs who work on the territory of the pseudo-state, and instead of suppressing illegal activities, they are these are not our lads!
