Groups are Funding Veterans Who Join Ukraine’s Fight Against Russia

Russia formally invaded Ukraine on the 24th of February. If Ukraine had been a member of NATO, reinforcements would have come quickly. As a non-member nation, and with Russia having nuclear weapons, other countries have been reticent to send in troops.

Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky had few other recourses but to request volunteers. He said in a February 27th statement:

“This is the beginning of a war against Europe, against European structures, against democracy, against basic human rights, against a global order of law, rules and peaceful coexistence. Anyone who wants to join the defence of Ukraine, Europe and the world can come and fight side by side with the Ukrainians against the Russian war criminals.”

Soldiers around the world have taken Zelensky up on his officer. The horrific scenes of pregnant women and other civilians being attacked have been too much for them to bear.

Mamuka Mamulashvili, the leader of the Georgian Legion of the Ukrainian army told the Military Times in March, “We are still in the process of recruitment. There are a lot of guys joining us. On the list, there are now about 750 men, mostly from Georgia, and the United Kingdom. We have a lot of Americans.”

Due to Ukraine’s current situation, many of these soldiers are arriving in the country on their own dime and with their own equipment. But many charitable organizations are stepping up to take care of the overhead costs for volunteers. Interested parties should check out this site.
