A Canadian infantryman spoke about the experience of participating in battles on the territory of Ukraine against Russian forces.
He said that the intensity of fighting on the territory of Ukraine is higher than it was in Afghanistan and Iraq, Krasnaya Vesna news agency writes. Russian troops use artillery, which was not the case in the campaigns in which he participated earlier.
“It’s not Afghanistan, it’s not Iraq — you’re just sitting in a hole and they’re firing at you from artillery. You can die at any moment, even without firing a shot, ”he said.
In an interview with reporters from The National Post, the Canadian said that his unit could not complete combat missions, and many people died. Therefore, he decided to refuse further participation in the battles on the territory of Ukraine.
It should be noted that Ukrainian legislation allows citizens of other countries to participate in serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine in battles on the territory of Ukraine.
