Volunteering To Be Cannon Fodder Is Not A Great Idea
Should Have Stayed Home
Many of the cabal-controlled governments and their captive news media outlets have been churning out pro-Ukraine propaganda ever since the Russian buildup on the border began back in early December. Once the Russian army crossed that border, foreign volunteers looking to help Ukraine turn back Putin’s forces flocked to the country looking to help.
Adventure and thrill seekers and professional mercenaries looking for a quick payday account for much of the stream of volunteers into Ukraine. The problem with being an adventure or thrill seeker is having second thoughts. Thankfully, their Ukrainian hosts seem to have taken this into account.
Stories like this and this and this are now emerging where shocked and disillusioned volunteers talk about their treatment at the hands of the government they traveled at great expense to help. Several stories of foreign volunteers being held at gunpoint and attempts being made to force them to take on suicide missions are being told by those who have managed to get out.
Is it any wonder that a corrupt government that’s been controlling a thuggish ‘national guard’ comprised of actual Nazis to do most of it’s dirty work in trying to subdue Donetsk and Luhansk for the past 8 years would decide to use foreign volunteers for involuntary suicide missions?
I’m surprised any foreign volunteers expected to be utilized as anything other than convenient cannon fodder, being sent out to become easily wiped out targets of Russian guns while the regular Ukraine forces attempt to use them as shields to get close enough to maneuver.
Not to mention the fact these foreign volunteers that have flocked to Ukraine are placing themselves in a legal limbo where their status is murky and ill-defined, should they fall into the Russian’s hands.
Should they get captured by Russian forces, they’re not regular military and they won’t be wearing an official Ukrainian military uniform - which would very likely cause them to be considered unlawful combatants, which is just one step up from being a terrorist or a pirate.
The good news is that the fighting appears to be almost over. The main Ukrainian/fascist fighters in the East have been encircled and are being slowly squeezed into either submission or destruction. Now that the initial wave of volunteers are telling their stories on social media, and the dire situation the Kyiv government is in becomes more evident by the day, the number of those flocking to the country to become willing cannon fodder will be reduced to a trickle, and then stop.
