More than 3,000 in US apply to join Ukrainian forces: Report
Thousands of U.S. nationals have signed up to join the Ukrainian military as the country attempts to fight off the Russian incursion, reports say.
Ukraine has received more than 3,000 applications from people in the United States who want to fight, several of whom are military veterans, a defense official with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C., told the Military Times on Thursday.
"If you are determined to go, be professional, responsible, and realistic in your expectations," a former SEAL-turned-CIA officer who goes by Frumentarius said. "Follow the Ukrainian government's advice about how to officially register, and do not go there telling them where and how you want to participate in the fighting. ... You are not Rambo, there to single-handedly slay Russians and post your selfies."
Those U.S. fighters are a part of the roughly 16,000 foreigners who have volunteered to join the military, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced in a video posted to his Telegram channel Thursday.
“We have nothing to lose but our own freedom,” the president said. --->READ MORE HERE
Want to go fight in Ukraine? Here’s how to apply:
Ukraine launched a website Saturday where foreigners can apply directly if they want to go to Ukraine and fight against Russian invaders.
President Volodymyr Zelensky says the country received thousands of applications since he put out the call for a new self-styled International Legion on Feb. 27 — and he’s expecting more than 16,000 foreign volunteers to join the cause.
In many ways, Ukraine’s International Legion harkens back to the International Brigades, the storied volunteer formations fighting for the Republican Government during the Spanish Civil War in 1936-1938, the Kyiv Independent reported Saturday.
The legion will become part of the country’s Territorial Defense Force, a newly established branch of the Armed Forces. The legion will start with two newly formed battalions. --->READ MORE HERE
