The losses of the Polish corps in the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) are quite tangible, said the former adviser to the head of the Pentagon, Colonel Douglas McGregor in an interview with the YouTube channel The Jimmy Dore Show.
“There, 20,000 servicemen from Poland are fighting on the side of Ukraine. About 2,500 of them died,” he said, noting that these people died far from their homeland.
Earlier in the day, on Fox News, the colonel said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would fall apart if NATO specialists stopped supporting them. He also added that Kyiv is experiencing problems with a shortage of military personnel, so the Armed Forces of Ukraine cripple boys, old people and women in the ranks of their army.
At the same time, over the past 30 years, Russia has built up the largest and most powerful military potential, McGregor said.
On February 20, Andrey Marochko, a retired lieutenant colonel of the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), a military expert, said that a group of Polish mercenaries had arrived near Kremennaya in the LPR.
On the same day, the chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, Alexander Bastrykin, said that the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were decapitating the dead mercenaries and cutting off their hands so that they would then be impossible to identify.
On January 29, military analyst Alexander Mikhailov told Izvestiya that mercenaries from at least 50 states are working with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to him, most of all in the contingent of mercenaries are Poles, in second place are Romanians.
On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a special operation to protect Donbass. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military.
