Military Review

When will Ukraine receive the strength of special operations according to NATO standards? Never!

When will Ukraine receive the strength of special operations according to NATO standards? Never!

In January of this year, Ukraine developed its own special operations forces. In connection with this event, the delegation of NATO frequent in Kiev, which declare their intention to provide full support in the training of highly qualified specialists for the newly formed structure.

Especially in wanting to help are the United States. The commander of US special operations in Europe, Major General Gregory Lengeyl, at a meeting with Army General Viktor Muzhenko stated that “Ukraine will soon have its own training system for special forces, relying on its own combat experience and peculiarities of its own country, and the United States will in every way help exercises and training of special operations specialists. ”

Well, good intentions, but where can they lead the Ukrainian army?

As a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine received a powerful military grouping, which became the basis of its armed forces. But over the years of independence, this potential has been ineptly squandered by Kiev. Allocated security was enough only to maintain pants. There was no talk of intensive combat training at all. The exercises in military units have not been conducted for years. As a result, the Soviet experience in training troops was completely lost. This fully applies to special forces.

The civil war in the south-east of Ukraine forced the country's authorities to pay attention to the army and its training. A radical reform of the Armed Forces of Ukraine began, the goal of which is to shift the army to NATO standards. Naturally, such a goal implies a transition to the training system adopted in the block.

Already, American military instructors are training Ukrainian servicemen, including MTR specialists, who in the future should create their own system for training the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And, it would seem, it is the Americans who have everything necessary in order to best cope with this task. They were the first to create special operations forces and have the most extensive experience in their combat use. In addition, US instructors took and participate in the training of the armed forces of many states. However, it is difficult to recall which of the armies they had trained became truly combat-ready.

Just look at the examples of Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia.

A group of Afghan special forces, trained by American instructors, numbering thirty people, fought the night before with the terrorists who seized the hotel in the center of Kabul. Then it turned out that there were only four terrorists. The withdrawal of NATO troops from the territory of Afghanistan is also constantly being postponed due to poor training of the Afghan army.

The Iraqi army, which has been trained by the US military for more than ten years, has a numerical advantage over the enemy and is defeated after defeat by the armed forces of the Islamic state, led mainly by former officers of Saddam Hussein.

For about four years the armed forces of Georgia, prepared by the same instructors, lose the war to the troops of the North Caucasus Military District of Russia in August 2008 in a couple of days.

Why is it that the Americans, possessing the strongest armed forces in the world, cannot properly prepare the troops of their "allies"? The conclusion is one: they are not interested in this. Moreover, they are interested in having a weak army in these states. Such countries and their elites are easier to control and use for their own purposes. That is what they need from Ukraine.

Under the guidance of instructors, armies of many Latin American countries were trained (Honduras, El Salvador, Colombia, Chile, etc.). They do well in suppressing protests, food riots and punitive operations. Not bad they succeed and military coups. However, with their main function - protection from external aggression - things are not very good for them. It seems that, according to the Latin American scheme, American “friends” will prepare both the army of Ukraine and its MTR.

Therefore, the important statements of the Ukrainian leadership on the imminent transition to NATO standards are just another noodle on the ears of their own population, the same as tales about the abolition of visas with the EU and European integration.

      Do they need it? At least one, at least another. I watched the Friday shows of E. Kiselev and Savely Shuster. Complete nonsense. Everyone insists that Crimea is Ukraine, but no one knows how to return it, it is necessary, time is running out. On the LDNR in general, a complete ATAS with Ukrainian zombies. A certain American historian on Ukrainian "independent ufology" in what newspaper said that the reunification of Donbass is like death for Ukraine. 85% of the respondents immediately said that then they do not need the fuck. In defense came our present wanted by the investigation Ilya Ponomarev and some Russian actor who went there for permanent residence, that Ukraine cannot live without Donbass. Voted. The brains of the re-interrogated part of the suspension immediately turned 180 degrees. What is it like? belay They generally do not have their own opinions, but at the same time consider themselves great, and in fact zobmi. laughing

        The details of the capture of the middle landing ship of the 773 U401 project "Kirovograd" by the special forces of the Russian Armed Forces GRU became known. For more than 20 hours, the successive Russian special forces shouted to the Ukrainian sailors the command “Whoever leaps, he will” to the loudspeaker. After 20 hours, the exhausted sailors and officers were loaded onto trucks and sent to the hospital.

        when the dill are together and in a crowd, they immediately start a psychosis that is difficult to explain, someone offers something, absolutely impossible, they shout "yes" ... "come on" ... "we will do it" .... shouted dispersed and then difficulties begin in the implementation of the plan and when talking with a separate individual, he has glimpses of thought that something is wrong in the planned plan and it is not feasible ...

    training system for special forces, based on their own combat experience and the characteristics of their own country, and the United States will help in every way in the exercises and training of special operations specialists. ”

    Even I don’t remember a single successful operation, which was conducted in a bit more or less, by the chief officers. It is interesting and what they can teach, only how to fill it up? Haha

    For article + patriotism, and as for the rest, I will dwell in more detail. Well, firstly, I would like to read about the training system of Western special forces and the MTR forces in particular in the article, unfortunately I did not find it. Also in the article there is a lot of discussion on the topic of poor training of special forces (Iraq, Georgia, Afghanistan) by American instructors. I’ll probably agree here, but there are also Western special forces (Great Britain, Australia, Israel, France, Germany ...) which were trained by the Americans, and the result was different. There are different points of view on the topic of the effectiveness of MTRs in the USA and Great Britain, someone does not consider them effective and someone argues quite the opposite. But at the same time, one must not forget that both countries put the fulfillment of military tasks by special forces as the basis for external expansion (aggression). we can talk about a high level of training for solving problems abroad. With regards to the main question, will they raise or not the effectiveness of the MTR of Ukraine? Then only time will tell if they will succeed or not. In principle, it’s possible to prepare (roughly) 40-50 people to equip them with good gear / equipment and teach the wisdom of Western special forces, but we will see how it will be in practice .....

      After being hit by a spring from the Belarus tractor, the English intelligence officer forgot the ai-ki-do techniques and the fight of the Nanai boys. After being hit with a crowbar to tighten the tracks on the GTT, the like-lovers will lose the desire to drink chemerges and eat fat, and the spine will be worn only in shorts.

      Ukrainians for the Americans are the same Indians. Bribing the leaders and setting the tribes against each other, the mattresses were waiting for the outcome of the battle and destroyed, or driven into the reservation of the weakened winners, taking their land.

    Near Debaltseve, fighters of the 8 Armed Forces Regiment of the Armed Forces, served in checkpoints. For the formation of a normal special subdivision, it takes about five years. Training and combat, training and exercises, and practice and exercises. And competent teachers with experience and combat experience. And equipment and financing and fans of their craft and competent work of psychologists and psychiatrists and ..., and ..., etc.

    No weapons will help Ukraine against Russia. The main part of the population of this country, with the exception of Zapadentsev, will not fight against Russia, and Zapadentsy will scatter after the first military clash with the regular army of the Russian Federation, as the Georgians did in their time.

    What special forces can we talk about? In order to ensure the safe evacuation of those currently in power? With the capitals stolen from the people received during the war, against their own people?
    Are Americans an instructor? Yes, this is nonsense. They are liquid, however, a freebie and a show off are present.
    The author of the article __ correctly noted, / However, it is difficult to recall which of the armies they prepared became truly combat-ready. /
    We are not going to attack Ukraine, the time will come and we will suddenly become brothers from the invaders, sorry for straightforwardness, when there is nothing to eat, then again kisses on the gums.

    But in general, why MTR Uii? Do they have special tasks? In addition, how to exterminate more of its population? Neither the US nor NATO is needed for this.
    SHOULD! Release all recidivist maniacs from the zones. Give them booze and drugs and HERE they are, "the strength of the MTR". Here it is-ATO. And here it is - "special operation".
    They are already doing this. Americans are not needed ... although ... there are enough of their pederasts-perverts-sadists (judging by what they did with civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan).

    Simple, unclear. Who should teach whom?
