New Report on US Launches on the Ground in Ukraine Undertaking ‘Preparation for Operation on the Battlefield’

There are new reports of US special forces operators carrying out “battle preparation operations” in Ukraine.

Seth Harp, an investigative reporter and contributing editor for Rolling Stone, revealed the JSOC operations on Sunday.

According to a source familiar with the matter, Harp quoted a source familiar with the matter as saying: “US special operations operators are currently in Ukraine carrying out ‘battle preparation work’. “The military unit is the JSOC Advanced Operations Force, consisting of members of Delta Force and SEAL Team 6.”

The developments concern Americans who want to avoid getting entangled in a foreign war, but Harp cautions readers not to think this is an “escalation.”

Harp added: “This should NOT necessarily be seen as an escalation in Ukraine. “Small JSOC teams regularly infiltrate foreign countries to do covert (non-combat) work as part of a long-range contingency plan.”

“These are Title 10 denied operations, no different from CIA operations,” he observed.

However, while many have suggested that Harp was capable of leaking information affecting a sensitive operation, there are recent reports that corroborate the report.

“US special operations operators are continuing with their mission to build an elite fighting force in Ukraine, military officials said, even as Russia threatens to invade with thousands of troops and vehicles. tanks and their artillery along their borders,” Stripes reported on January 19, 2020, before the Russian invasion.

“The bottom line is that our training mission in Ukraine is ongoing,” said Lt. Col. Juan Martinez, a spokesman for U.S. Special Operations Command in Europe.

Martinez told Stripes that there are a lot of external factors at work, but added that “the order doesn’t back down from Ukraine.”

“We continue to see our mission in Ukraine as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the capabilities of our Special Operations Forces as a cornerstone of regional stability,” he said.

Stripes adds: “Stuttgart-based SOCEUR has been quietly operating a training center outside of Kyiv for the past few years. “The focus of the mission is to assist Ukrainian forces to more effectively defend against Russian aggression.”

Stripes also noted: “The presence of US special operations personnel is part of the small US military contingent still in Ukraine,” Stripes also noted. “There are also more than 100 Florida National Guard troops in Ukraine in advisory roles,” said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has threatened that World War 3 could break out if his negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin fail.

“I am ready for negotiations with Putin, but if they fail, it could mean World War III,” Zelensky said as Kyiv Independent reports.

“Zelensky told CNN he is open to negotiations with Putin, but warned that if efforts to negotiate fail, it could lead to a new World War,” the report added. Watch:

“I am ready for negotiations with him,” Zelensky said in the interview, referring to Putin. “I’ve been ready for the last two years, and I think – I think without negotiations we can’t end this war. I think everyone who thinks this is shallow and doesn’t solve anything, they just don’t understand this is so worth it. “

“If there is only a 1% chance that we can stop this war, I think we need to take this opportunity,” he continued. “We need to do that. I can tell you about the outcome of this negotiation in any case. We are losing people every day, innocent people on the face of the earth. Russian forces have come to destroy us, to kill us. “

“And we can uphold the dignity of our people and our military, we can deliver a powerful blow, we can strike back,” he said. “Unfortunately, our dignity will not save lives. So I think we have to use any form, any opportunity to have the ability to negotiate, the ability to talk to Putin, but if these efforts fail, that means this. is a Third World War”.

The presence of American troops on the ground in Ukraine is not a new development, but one that should nonetheless be worrisome for Americans who do not want the country involved in the conflict. Conducting training missions before an invasion is one thing, but a riskier endeavor in the midst of a ‘hot war’.

Meanwhile, a second American citizen was killed during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: James Hill. Secretary of State Tony Blinken announced another US civilian death earlier this week, but did not provide further details at the time.

Fox News also lost a videographer and a local producer during the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“Fox News veteran video journalist Pierre Zakrzewski and his local producer Oleksandra ‘Sasha’ Kuvshynova was killed just two days later, on March 15, when their vehicle was ‘attacked by fire’ near Kyiv,” CBS reported. “Zakrzewski is a European citizen working in London for Fox, while Kuvshynova is one of many Ukrainians. Indigenous people joined foreign news groups to help cover the war in their country.”

Zelensky recently encouraged Congress to impose a ‘no-fly zone’ in Ukraine, which equates to the risk of war. President Joe Biden wisely turned down Zelensky’s offer.
