Since the invasion began, Ukrainian officials have urged foreign volunteers to help fight Russian forces. Then the volunteers have responded to Ukraine’s appeal for people to serve in an international battalion that will help resist Russia’s invading forces.
Russia is continuously making advances in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Several Western nations have imposed sanctions on Moscow to put it on the back foot.
Many more have stepped forward from other countries, most from other post-Soviet states such as Georgia and Belarus,” the official added.
The development comes after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on March 3 announced the formation of an “international legion” of 16,000 foreign volunteers, who he said were being asked to “join the defense of Ukraine, Europe and the world”. The president had said that we have nothing to lose but our own freedom.
According to the BBC report Western countries are not sending troops to fight on the ground in Ukraine, but have been delivering arms to the war-torn nation. They have also brought in punishing economic sanctions against Russia and Russian oligarchs and leaders.
