Three thousand foreign mercenaries killed in UkraineFri 12:01 pm Europe/London, 2 Sep 2022 11
Ukrainian ATTEMPT at offensive in Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog, South Ukraine, and other directions continues with Kiev’s troop suffering SIGNIFICANT losses, these actions were planned by Zelensky’s office to create ILLUSION of ability of Ukrainian military to conduct OFFENSIVES – Russian Defense Minister Shoigu. ⚡️
UPDATE: Peski, Donetsk region under Russian-led control, Russian forces have reached administrative border of Nikolaev region, South Ukraine,
3 THOUSAND foreign mercenaries have been killed since start of special operation – Shoigu.” TG / Masno
TAP – Presumably another 3000 are wounded and not a few have been taken prisoner, and some executed for fighting as mercenaries in Donbass. There were estimated to be 20,000 new arrivals so the loss rate is approaching 50% in 6 months, or 100% in a year. As the fighting is now hotting up with these faux Ukrainian offences, the loss rate will soon be 100% in three months. Not a great risk profile if you are thinking of popping over to join in the entertainment. Ukrainians don’t care and Russians love to kill you. Surely there are better ways to make a living…ways where you end up alive and not in a body bag and your family unlikely to receive your remains.
“Security Contractors” are being offered $1500-2000 per day over there. This is for top tier men with extensive combat experience and not the pudgy fools thus far paraded on TV.
One of my mates was offered this but he’s always known the score in Ukraine and likes being alive.
Rumour is that the Russians can track them via their vaccinations. Hilarious if true.
I would be extremely surprised if any of them make it back and the great majority are probably brown bread by now.
Looks like Andy the fraud McNab is indeed one of them too. No word from him in months.
Too old surely.
You would think so but he was in pretty good shape when he squared up to me. I should have nutted him but my client may not have approved.
There was a report a few months ago (I think by Real Raw News) stating that he and a couple of other mercenaries had been taken out by the Russian troops. It wasn’t through fighting but the Russians came across them as they were trying to blow something up. The details are a bit hazy in my mind as there’s so much going on.
Yes I posted that here. I once saw him at a book launch in London held by Lord Ashcroft which coincidentally was swarming with Ukrainian Generals. About 5/6 years ago. The Generals were fat old lumps and McNab came up to me afterwards and eyeballed me for making my displeasure about them clear earlier in the evening.
Lying hat bastard.
Got one between the eyes from Spetsnaz. Outstanding.
I hated his book.
It’s 90% made up. Channel 4 did a good documentary about it where a former SAS man (who looked like a vicar and was brilliant) went back to Iraq and investigated it.
McNab was just a greedy bully he made tons of money off of that book WTF was he doing out there at his age what a prick.
Yes Mr Dude, I saw the documentary before I read it. What a clown he is.
