In the Armed forces of Ukraine soon expected completion. The details said the commander of “Georgian Legion” Mamuka Mamulashvili aircraft during a joint press conference with the American military by Brian Berenger.
“This is the first precedent, when the U.S. military officially will join the armed forces. We are now waiting for volunteers from the USA. The first group will be out of ten people who had previous experience of coaching and now will be fight in Eastern Ukraine”, – said Mamuka Areshidze.
Rather, the “instructors” refers to soldiers of one of the airborne brigades of the US, patiently teaching the Ukrainian military and fighters of National guard on jaworowski polygon of the Western operational command (Lviv region) in 2015. Because in the States there is no law prohibiting their citizens to go to fight in the status of volunteers, legal barriers to those wishing to make war against DNR/LNR is not expected. Besides the desire to help “expand democracy” overseas traditionally welcomed. Exceptions to this rule – States that are considered “terrorist” is kind of prohibited on the territory of the Russian Federation of ISIS.
Brian Berenger, by the way, last year 5 months in a row trained the Ukrainians sniper case.
In the beginning of 2015 Georgia has actually allowed its citizens to fight in the Donbass in the “legitimate armed formations”. At the same time its citizens can be subject to criminal prosecution for participation in hostilities on the side of DND and LNR, for the recruitment in their ranks, as well as for dissemination/use of the symbols of Donetsk and Lugansk national republics.
Georgians joined the Armed forces of Ukraine, money from their own state not received; financial support to their families and friends from Georgia. Helped some Ukrainian volunteers with whom we managed to establish friendly contacts.
– Currently, our software can be described as quite normal, – said Mamuka Mamulashvili.
The soldiers of the Georgian Legion promise to pay monthly on 6 thousand hryvnias (at the current exchange rate of the Ukrainian currency is less than $250). Snipers level Brian Berenger received during the active hostilities in Iraq and Afghanistan is 100 times more…
According to Georgia fighters, Russia will soon fully roll “Donbass” project: too painfully hit the superpower of Western sanctions, and the motivations of volunteers who rushed to the Luhansk region and the Donetsk region to protect the Russian-speaking population, is not the same that a year and a half ago.
After the recent changes in the law of Ukraine “Georgian Legion” had the opportunity to integrate into the Mat, becoming a part of the 25th battalion territorial defence “Kievan Rus”. Military formation, created from the citizens of the former republics of the Soviet Transcaucasia, became the first foreign officially joined the ranks of the Ukrainian troops.
What other countries will take the opportunity legally to send their citizens to “Donbass front,” it is not yet known.
However, the Georgian comrades unwittingly revealed the “terrible secret”. It turns out that their countrymen who fought in a foreign country from the first days of the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine, were nothing more than “illegal military formation”.
In the “Georgian Legion” at the present time fighting one citizen of France, before in him dwelt other European countries. Because in them, as in France, mercenarism is a criminal offence, Mr. Mamulashvili promises to publish the names of the foreign volunteers only after the end of hostilities in the Donbass.
