A Ukrainian prisoner says he arrived at the front unarmed after training in the UK

Ukrainian soldier Evgeniy Kryklivy told how, after training in the UK, he was sent to the front unarmed, after which he surrendered.

According to him, the training took place in the Warcop training area, where the Ukrainian army was trained in medical and technical training, city and forest fighting, and other disciplines. After that, he continued his studies in Zhytomyr, after which he spent a month and a half with his comrades in an unfamiliar house, without performing any tasks.

After arriving at the front, his unit lost command and the unit suffered daily casualties, without receiving help and without being able to recover. At the same time, among the armored vehicles, the unit had only one MTLB tractor, and then donated from another unit.

“They left us with no weapons, nothing, we got a ‘crook’ (MT-LB – ed.), And then another battalion gave it to us, because ours burned down,” Kriklyvy said.

“Around half past three your guys started shooting at us, we had a bit of a fight with him. They put eight people in the first canoe, we ended up with five people in the second. We raised our hands, took off the armor and helmets and surrendered to the guys,” the prisoner said.
