US military instructors start training battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

48
Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said that the United States was embarking on the second stage of training Ukrainian troops. The second stage includes training and equipping representatives of six battalions of ground forces and one special-purpose battalion. Captain Davis quoted news agency TASS:


This is part of our efforts to assist Ukraine in the implementation of long-term military reform and enhance the professionalism of its military personnel, which should help it to strengthen its internal defense capabilities. Within two years, Washington has allocated more than 265 million dollars for military aid to Kiev.


The name of the training program for Ukrainian soldiers, which is carried out by American military instructors, is called Fearless Guard. The first stage of work consisted in the preparation of units of the National Guard. The second stage of training Ukrainian security officials will be held at the Yavoriv training ground in the Lviv region, as well as in the city of Khmelnitsky.

Against this background, General Hodges, commander of US ground forces in Europe, stated that Russia's actions in Syria "will not distract the world community from events in Ukraine." UNIAN quotes an American general:

I can say that Ukraine can be sure that the United States will not be distracted by what Russia is doing in Syria or somewhere else. We welcome Russian support against the “Islamic State” in Syria, but we will not turn away from the fact that Crimea remains occupied.


Interestingly, the American general, the commander of the forces occupying Europe, speaks of the “occupation of the Crimea” ...

Hodges said that in November Ukraine was provided with military-technical assistance, which means the transfer of anti-battery radars AN / TPQ-36.

          Whatever we wish, the result is known, it is not the “raw material" from which it is possible to create combat units, I am silent about instructors, they are only interested in the development of the allocated funds.

          I understand that the name of the training program reflects the main problem that needs to be solved? But since there will soon be nothing to guard, the name: "Fearless fear"I think it will be more accurate! fellow wassat

      Within two years, Washington has allocated more than $ 265 million for military assistance to Kiev.

      I understand that this money went to the training of 7 people? laughing (one representative per baht) laughing Then ukram respect. Let me explain: the preparation of the "moderate" in Syria took 500 million, ready 5 people, which means 100 for each.
      and here at 35 million per one, which means * fucking a little smarter wassat

    It will be interesting to look at this equipment after its capture as a trophy ...

    I see the Americans continue with a smart look to do stupidity after stupidity.

    After all, they warned WASHINGTON do not cross the red line with UKRAINE .... it seems they didn’t understand well, then for the consequences, then the Americans don’t be offended.

    One way or another, the Americans did not get Ukraine, but the outskirts laughing .Ukraine will never be able to join NATO, the missile defense system will not be deployed, the Amer’s base will never be in Sevastopol. Therefore, the Amers have to be content with a negligible amount. Strategically, the Americans lost hopelessly, but are trying to bargain for themselves insignificant pluses.

    We already know what the USA instructors trained from the military ... the maximum what they can do is police operations and EVERYTHING, take the same "armies" of Iraq and Afghanistan that they are capable of standing at the roadblocks after the Americans training program, yes to distill equipment to the place of training, since the Americans do not even need friendly, capable armies ...

    The third stage will include fitting and fitting of imported plastic bags of black color. Maybe blue ... (Tolerance) request

    "Fearless Guardian"

    Americans love loud and pompous names. But here is the regularity - the louder and “prettier” it sounds, the less good it is.
    we will not turn away from the fact that Crimea remains occupied.

    According to the general’s face, it is noticeable that he is at odds with world history. The main thing is clearly pronounces the learned words and does not run to the office to consult.

    Training of security officials? Approximately the same as when stripping power lines from the "Right Sector"!
    The siloviki in one piece, putting their hands on the shoulders of their comrades (as taught by the instructor),
    tried to remove the blockade of the power transmission line, but one frail Tatar threw the "fighters" to the ground!

    It is not clear how those who do not know how to fight can learn to fight! Well, Americans have already taught everyone to fight, who then draped without hind legs, or surrendered or went over to the side of the enemy. However, as they do themselves, and then they say that it was a regrouping.

What is the difference between the killed Parisians and the killed Luhansk residents or residents of Donetsk? Why are hundreds of killed Frenchmen - the whole world in sorrow, and thousands of those killed in the Donbass and Poroshenko’s murderer are greeted with smiles and a slap on the shoulder

The Saudis won’t be able to defeat Yemen, the South Vietnamese army in the 60s couldn’t defeat northern Vietnam .... but about special forces it’s better to be silent. The infamous Delta division did NOT have ANY SUCCESSFUL operation. "Good luck" to you euroclaws

      So these 3,14 themselves did not defeat anyone. If victory is somewhere, then the Yankees always clung to the winner in order to share laurels with him. They didn’t open the second front either, because they were waiting for someone to take.

    Well, we won’t turn our back on much (from the occupation of part of Cuba, part of Japan, a large part of Europe, Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.).
