Well sort of as the UK is part of NATO. Right?
75 UK military personnel being sent there in March to help train Ukraine’s army, provide infantry training, advise on logistics, medical care and tactical intelligence. [Source]
I had also read from defensenews.com ( ):-
American soldiers will deploy to Ukraine this spring to begin training four companies of the Ukrainian National Guard.
Thus UK/US sides of NATO will both have broken point 10 of the 13 point Minsk 2 agreement that states:-
All foreign troops, heavy weapons and mercenaries are to be withdrawn from Ukraine.
Worst bit to add to this was the hilarious statement made by PM Cameron as he argued that “because a couple of Russian planes fly around the Channel we shouldn’t talk ourselves into a situation where we think somehow we cannot defend ourselves. We absolutely can.”
Just another reminder folks, it’s now only 25 days to Spring.
And there I was starting to think things were getting better.
