British special forces in Ukraine: SAS will no longer be spared, as they once were in Chechnya

The UK sent at least two groups of specialists in sabotage and guerrilla warfare from the Special Air Service of Great Britain (Special Air Service – SAS) to Ukraine.

They are deployed from the city of Hereford, where the headquarters of the SAS is located. Their new place of service is the Lviv region of Ukraine, the territory of the 16th separate brigade of army aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This is reported by RIA Novosti.

The interlocutor of the agency said that one of the groups consisted of about 8-10 people. They specialize in sabotage and guerrilla activities, and also have extensive experience in recruiting and training agents to work in hostile territory.

In fact, the British have become adept at organizing coups d’état, mass protest rallies, of course, unsanctioned. SAS specialists have a lot of contract killings of well-known politicians, recruitment of agents, including those in higher spheres, preparation of terrorist attacks.

Separate operations involving SAS turned into major scandals. So, in 1988, in Gibraltar, during Operation Flavius, special forces from this service shot three volunteers of the Irish Republican Army at close range. According to intelligence, they were preparing a terrorist attack. But during the search they did not find any weapons or explosives.

Another scandal erupted due to the participation of SAS operatives in hostilities in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. In 1995, they coordinated the actions of NATO aviation, which bombed the positions of the Army of the Republika Srpska. But the brave NATO pilots, with the assistance of the British, also carried out raids on peaceful settlements in order to intimidate the civilian population.

The combat experience of the Special Air Service is measured in decades. It was formed during World War II. SAS commandos participated in the Korean War, in the conflict in Northern Ireland, in the war between Great Britain and Argentina over the Falkland (Malvinas) Islands, the events in the Persian Gulf, and in the Afghan campaign.

I don’t undertake to assess the level of their professionalism, but more importantly, our entire history, starting from the Suvorov times, reminds retired FSB Colonel Vasily Vereshchak.

– England helped the enemies of Russia in every possible way. If they had not done this in Ukraine, then I would have been surprised. The Anglo-Saxons remain secret pitmen, enemies of our country. It’s always been that way. And they also participated in two Chechen campaigns, their instructors came to us, but then they were spared for some reason, although they were preparing terrorists. Britain also supplied them with money, by the way. Now everything is repeated in Ukraine.

joint venture»: — Could British instructors cook provocation with WMD, as it happened, for example, in Syria?

“Everything is possible, but we already, thanks to our intelligence, have information that such a provocation is likely, and we can take action. Although there is an example of provocation in Bucha. There was a filming showing empty streets. And suddenly there are corpses! Absolutely shameless. There is nothing sacred left for those who invented it.

I don’t believe that the Ukrainians themselves have come to this. God forbid, of course, that there are no provocations with chemical and, especially, nuclear weapons, but with such advisers as the British, and the Americans, everything is possible.

By the way, British specialists from the SAS often do things that the rest of the army units do not want to dirty their hands about. In addition, in zones of “hot” conflicts, they most often work under the cover of the White Helmets or other humanitarian organizations. And then the world community is indignant when some “Doctors Without Borders” are arrested by the authorities on charges of espionage or something else illegal.

What did the British instructors forget in Ukraine?

Sergey Goncharov, President of the Unit Veterans Association anti-terror “Alpha”, member of the Russian Academy of Security, Defense and Law Enforcement Problems believes that this question should have been asked back in 2014.

Now Johnson blamed for the fact that he let slip about the British instructors who train the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine outside the territory of Ukraine. They have been preparing militants for military and sabotage operations for a long time. They are also trained in the use of weapons supplied from NATO countries.

The fact that instructors work on Ukrainian territory is natural. The successes of the Russian Armed Forces, as well as units of the DPR and LPR, cause Kyiv to fear that they can move further, to western Ukraine, to the same Lviv region. There, it must be admitted, 90 percent of the population is anti-Russian.

In this situation, the instructors are quite capable of preparing sabotage groups and provocateurs to fight our troops. I am not saying that this will happen, but it is quite possible. This is the first.

Secondly, in the territories under the control of the Russian armed forces and units of the DPR and LPR, both Easter services and processions of people will be held, who on May 9 will carry portraits of their grandfathers and great-grandfathers who defended Ukraine from the Nazi invaders. And, of course, there will be events in honor of Victory Day. I admit that preparations are underway for provocations during the celebrations that will be held in the liberated cities, in particular in Mariupol.

joint venture»: — What is the status of these specialists»? Are they treated as combatants or as terrorists?

“Now what is happening in Ukraine and in the world as a whole no longer fits into any agreements, into any interstate agreements that have not been working for a long time, and this is the end of it. In fact, each state solves its problems at its own discretion. Here they detained two British mercenaries, and now London refuses them: they say, they went to fight on their own initiative, let them get out themselves.

But if, for example, in Mariupol we find foreigners who are active officers in the armies of countries that are members of NATO, then this will be a completely different situation, and the alliance, in my opinion, is very afraid of this. But it is pointless to talk about their status in conditions when international agreements, including the Geneva Conventions on the conduct of war, are not taken into account, the expert is convinced.

The fact that instructors from NATO countries have been training Ukrainian militants for a long time, and the whole world knows about it, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry said on her Telegram channel Maria Zakharova.

“Polish, British, American, Canadian and other instructors have been herding neo-Nazi militants for a long time. And they are not instructors. These are the secret services of the NATO countries. And there are not dozens, but hundreds and thousands. If you call a spade a spade, they are involved in the management of hostilities in Ukraine, ”wrote Zakharova.
