Earlier, UNIAN wrote that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the creation of a special unit – the Foreign Legion , which has already begun to carry out combat missions to counter Russian aggression.

More than 20,000 volunteers and veterans from 52 countries have volunteered to join , according to Brigadier General Kirill Budanov, commander of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the ministry that will lead the legion.


  1. 40,000 and counting! How do you like those numbers Sir Scradge? I think we’ll take back Kherson soon and the Migs will be here soon too. Meanwhile we have to get the crazy ruSSo-Muslims out of the nuclear power plant.

    • To take care of the Chechens I would warn Putin that if they blow the NPP that several nukes will land on Chechnya and Moscow.

  2. That’s already twice the number from only a few days ago. This force is growing faster than I’ve predicted. Great!
