Breaking News: The United States Department of Defense (Pentagon) has confirmed that United States soldiers have arrived in Ukraine amid the Russian-Ukraine war.
“A small number of U.S. military forces inside Ukraine have recently begun doing onsite inspections to ensure that Ukrainian troops are properly accounting for the Western-provided weapons they receive, a senior U.S. defense official told Pentagon reporters Monday,”
Most likely highly trained elite U.S troops and not ordinary U.S soldiers have entered Ukraine capable of avoiding Russian espionage.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to provide a military update, would not say where the inspections are taking place or how close to the battlefronts the U.S. troops are getting. The official said U.S. personnel can’t do inspections “close to the front lines,” but said they are going where security conditions allow.
U.S. monitors have conducted in-person inspections for only about 10 percent of the 22,000 U.S.-provided weapons sent to Ukraine that require special oversight.
U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details that have not been made public previously, said they are racing to deploy new means for tracking weapons seen as having a heightened risk of diversion, including Stinger surface-to-air missiles and Javelin antitank missiles, amid what they describe as Ukraine’s “super hot conflict.”
This message most likely is well-known inside the depths of the Russian intel-community, and not well received. But it seems the U.S is willing to end the Ukraine war if it means even angering the big Russian bear.
