Hodges: we started in Ukraine a new stage of preparation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in which 400 US troops were involved

61
Order 400 US military took part in the new training of Ukrainian soldiers and officers, passes TASS the message of the commander of the US troops in Europe, Ben Hodges.




“On November 23, we began a new phase of training for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, during which the first of five army battalions is being trained,” the general said, noting that soldiers from Canada, Great Britain and Lithuania are participating in the program together with the Americans.

During the 2 stage, it is planned to prepare and equip the 6 battalions, including one special forces unit.

As the Pentagon had previously stated, assistance to Ukraine is provided "for the purpose of implementing long-term military reform and enhancing the professionalism of its servicemen." For two years, America has allocated over $ 265 million for this assistance.

Launched in 2014, the program is called Fearless Guard. Training is conducted at the Yavoriv training ground.

      - Listen, explain to me. Is the word "Russian" translated as "Russian" or as "Russian"? - It depends on the context. Well, like, for example, "American" - depending on the context, either "American" or "p.indos" ....

            The most important thing for a soldier's morale is motivation. Let us recall at least the fact that in the Great Patriotic War, out of 113 twice Heroes of the Soviet Union, 32 are representatives of Ukraine. Almost one third! People fought for their children, wives, mothers ... And what is the motivation of a modern Ukrainian soldier? Protect the interests of Lyashko and similar pedophiles and shoot the citizens of their country? The subconscious of these soldiers perfectly "understands" and therefore all kinds of suicides, mental illness and the like.

          Yes, from the very beginning of all these events in Ukraine, it was extremely clear that all this was started with the aim of weakening our country, pushing the Slavs' heads against each other and influencing the living standards of the population at the same time increasing the discontent of the country's residents against the government and, like "mushrooms" from the ground, various Khodorkovsky fed the "milk" of the US State Department and others like him all-propals.
          And the fact that "instructors" from the USA, Georgia, Israel and our other "enemies" have long been present in Ukraine:

        Some teach, others accumulate strength ... When is the offensive already?

        Message from Edward Basurin
        "DPR reconnaissance revealed an accumulation of 100 units of armored vehicles and other weapons in Kiev 5 km from the front. In the area of ​​the settlement of Dzerzhinsk (5 km from the line of contact), a concentration of weapons and military equipment of up to 100 units was noted, including ten units of Grad MLRS." Military equipment was also found by reconnaissance in other parts of the contact line, including in the village of Verkhnetoretskoye, which is located in the occupied part of the Yasinovatsky district to the north of Donetsk. Militia reconnaissance recorded the arrival of foreign military instructors in the Kherson region, as well as the presence of militants with foreign weapons in the front-line zone west of Donetsk.In the occupied city of Krasnohorivka, intelligence noted the arrival of 50 military personnel in Hammer-type vehicles. Ukrainian war criminals nine times broke the rules m ceasefire. According to the Ministry of Defense, areas of the Donetsk airport, the nearby settlements of Veseloe and Spartak, the Abakumov mine in the west of the capital and the Gorlovka mine 6-7 were subjected to shelling from the side of punishers. The enemy fired with mortars, infantry fighting vehicles and small arms. "

          After NG think. And at the same time in Syria, and what good in Karabakh. Transnistria, they are most likely just trying to block. For this, technology is being pulled in there. Obama decided to go down in history as the founder of the Third World. And then this Rush pancake does not fall apart, either from sanctions or from cheap oil. Apparently sick of waiting. I do not want to believe in myself, as if I were mistaken, but we are preparing for a bad version of events. The invasion of Syria is a settled issue. Ukrainians know this and prepare their blitzkrieg.

        Is the word "Russian" translated as "Russian" or as "Russian"?


        Russian is already a synonym for many meanings. So the word Russian. For example, when you have to polemicize in some places in the West, they sometimes tell me, you talk like Russian. That is, and a synonym for a certain geopolitical position. Or, if this position is hidden, the analytics method. Not without reason, all the forces of the Anglo-Saxon world are thrown into the struggle with the Russians, as the common denominator of all synonyms of the word.

        The national meaning of the word has a parallel meaning. So the Yakut in origin and the Russian by citizenship, abroad, was rushed. And even in its origin, Russian, but living in the West and completely kaprophagiruyuschego Anglo-Saxon, to put it mildly, manure, all the same, remains rash.

        Of course, they will be able to equip the second-hand ha with this money, than to equip it - a big question, but can they teach how to do it? American methods are inferior to CA methods, the experience with amers is very specific. They know how to fight only with absolute superiority. Heroes in America remained only in comics and Hollywood. In Iraq, for example, even with complete superiority in aviation, M1 tanks were forbidden to engage in combat with units equipped with T-72s. As soon as the Americans met real resistance, all the most difficult and forbidden things were immediately launched. The BCH is now far from partisans, and the APU does not even have full aviation support. It’s absurd to even compare the motivation, on the one hand, people protecting their homes and families, on the other hand, either engaged imbeciles from PS or Selyaks who don’t need this war for nothing. Propaganda in the trenches only works if it confirms what the soldier sees himself.

      That is not the question. The question is in the process. In order to initiate the process, no special knowledge or experience is needed. Needed, which presses a button. And the fact that US citizens die, so with the state of the Western media, they can die many times more, without worrying public opinion.

    Why can't you ask the American partners a question, "Why have you forgotten here at our borders?"
    They do not hide, against whom they prepare ukrov? Do not hide.
    Can a rocket accidentally fly into a training camp? Well, by accident, quite.
    Are they smeared in hospitals? Well, we supposedly missed a bit. Or even pretend we didn’t do anything, we don’t know. Prove it. Although the howl will be specific, but ...
    I think they will have no more desire to learn ukrov.

They don’t understand a word, they don’t even understand the threat. As much as Putin shows them weapons, all in vain. But if the boxes go home, then they quickly grab.
