Great Britain is ready to evacuate its troops from Ukraine in the event of a military invasion by Russia.

Writes about this Daily Express .

“Commanders must conduct a full ‘review’ of Operation Orbital to ensure that all British personnel can be safely withdrawn if Moscow orders troops to be deployed,” the newspaper writes. 

According to sources of the publication, most of the British forces are stationed in Yavorov, from where they will go to the Polish border. A group of staff officers from Kiev will also head towards the border, and British sailors stationed in Odessa have already left for the UK for Christmas.

He will receive information from staff at the Northwood headquarters.

“He will be watching closely to assess the impact of any incursion on the ability to withdraw his troops – he cannot let them be trapped there,” said an army source.

Earlier, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace called it “unlikely” that the West would help Ukraine with troops in the event of a large-scale Russian invasion  .

Aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine

On December 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he  wanted to receive guarantees from the West that Ukraine would not join  NATO.

US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said that Joe Biden, during talks with Vladimir Putin on December 7, refused to make concessions on the issue of Ukraine’s NATO membership prospects.

On December 16, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced that  NATO would not make concessions to Russia  on the issue of Ukraine’s approach to membership in the Alliance. According to him, Ukraine has the right to protection and, together with NATO, will determine the issue of membership in the Alliance.

On December 17, the Russian Federation proposed to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)  to abandon Ukraine’s admission to NATO  and “from conducting any military activity on the territory of Ukraine.” Russia also offered the United States not to create military bases on the territory of the countries of the former USSR and not to accept these countries into NATO.

On December 23, Stoltenberg said the  Alliance had never promised not to accept new members from eastern Europe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that in early 2022, representatives of the Russian Federation and the United States will discuss security issues in Europe in Geneva.

  1. more bullshit sensationalist crap from the press, hoping that nobody in the UK who reads this shite actually knows where Ukraine is let alone Kyiv or Yavoriv.

    They could fucking well walk from Yavoriv to Poland before the nazis even reached the Dnipro and still have time to stop for Lunch.
