‘Troubling': Putin's puppet rattled as UK-trained Ukrainian soldiers leading advance

3 mins read


Kremlin-controlled media network Russia One has exposed the panic among Moscow’s pundits after the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a counter-offensive against invading troops. The advances of Kyiv’s soldiers were described as “troubling” by notorious Russian presenter and political commentator Olga Skabeeva. Russian media sources reported that Kyiv had made use of Ukrainian troops trained in Britain to gain the upper hand as they close in on Kremlin-occupied regions in the east and south of the country.

Speaking on Russia One, Ms Skabeeva reported: “Ukraine’s armed forces went on the offensive. 

“As a result of difficult battles, there is information that Russian units have left Balakliya.

“Fighters of the National Guard left the area. They have left the city in an organised manner via the corridor on the outskirts in the east.

“For its advancement in the direction of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s armed forces used the units that have been trained in Britain.” 

She added: “The news is troubling, the information is inconsistent.”

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence reported that the Kharkiv city of Balakliya had been liberated from Russian control last week.

President Zelenksy later confirmed the advancement of Ukrainian forces, adding his thanks to the troops who had “returned full control to the city.”

Training of Ukrainian soldiers began in England in June with a course intended to provide troops with the level of military skill needed to continue the fight against Russia.

The UK Ministry of Defence has revealed more than 4,700 Ukrainian soldiers have already completed the training plan, with the scheme prepared to train up a total of 10,000 Ukrainians.
