Yavoriv, Ukraine. American soldiers, part of a Pentagon program that has US forces in over 160 countries, continue to train neo-Nazi Ukrainian soldiers in how to kill Ukrainian citizens in the Donbass. Their stated goal, is to have Ukraine ready to enter NATO by 2020. Their presence in Ukraine is a clear violation of the Minsk agreements Ukraine is a signatory to.

At Yavoriv Combat Training Center American instructors lead soldiers from the 1st Ukrainian Airmobile Battalion, 79th Air Assault Brigade through GP-25 grenade launcher training at the Yavoriv CTC at the “International Peacekeeping and Security Center.”.

NATO CTC trainers, partnered with Soldiers of the US Army’s 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, are teaching troops of the Ukrainian army’s 1st Airmobile Battalion, 79th Air Assault Brigade how to employ the grenade launchers during the battalion’s training at the CTC.

The United States Army’s 45th IBCT is deployed as part of the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine and is paired with Canadian, U.K., Polish, Lithuanian, and Danish service members. The mission of JMTG-Ukraine is to improve the CTC’s ability to train soldiers and build professionalism within the Ukrainian military, so they can correctly kill their own citizens in the disputed Donbass region of the Ukraine.

The presence of the American forces, or any NATO military unit, is a violation of the Minsk Agreements the US insists Russia impose and keep. Under section 10, it clearly says, “Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, and also mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under OSCE supervision. Disarmament of all illegal groups.” It will indeed be interesting to watch these forces be removed from the Ukraine.
