US continues its interventionist policy in the Ukrainian conflict, prolonging tensions and security crisis.

According to recent reports, the US is recruiting Afghan pilots to fight in Ukraine. The objective would be to restore Ukrainian Air Force troops after the numerous casualties caused by Russian forces during the special military operation. With that, it remains evident that the US wants to prolong the conflict at all costs, even if it is necessary to sacrifice more and more lives.
In a recent interview, an anonymous source from the US military and diplomatic circles informed Russian media that the Pentagon is running a secret training program for Afghan pilots who allegedly fled the Central Asian country with US forces after the Taliban took Kabul. The combatants would have fought alongside the American occupying troops, which is why they feared punishment from the Taliban government, and for that reason they received asylum in the US.
Currently, the program is being conducted within the US territory, in the state of California, with plans to send the pilots to Europe soon. They will be integrated into the ranks of the Ukrainian “resistance”, with the aim of recovering Kiev’s military power, considering that the local air force troops have been practically decimated by Russia. Currently, the Ukrainian air combat capability is extremely weakened, as there is not enough personnel or equipment to maintain the routine of confrontations, so, Western aid is really the only way to keep Ukrainian military active.
In addition, it was informed by the source that not only pilots would be participating in the program, but also Afghan troops with other military specializations, mainly former members of special operations units. The case reveals that the US continues to work with an aid program to Kiev that goes far beyond the simple supply of weapons and money, with fighters being mobilized to replace ranks after Ukrainian casualties, which undoubtedly characterizes a high degree of interventionism. However, the informant believes that even with this help there will be no change in the final outcome of the conflict, considering the undeniable advance of Russian forces. In fact, no military aid from the West seems enough to prevent Moscow from achieving its goals in the operation.
“As we know, the Pentagon began recruiting former Afghan pilots who ran to the US together with the Americans a year ago. Their training now kicks off in California with plans to subsequently dispatch them to Ukraine via Poland (…) All these hysterical attempts ‘to plug holes’ will only postpone the Kiev regime’s military catastrophe and the political one of its ‘sponsors’ in Washington (…) They won’t impact the end result”, the source said during the interview.
This type of assistance with troop mobilization is not the only one being operated by the US and other NATO countries. There is widespread mobilization for foreign mercenaries to be deployed in Ukraine. Western media channels have been spreading false information about the conflict, trying to make it seem less dangerous and intense than it really is, talking about a non-existent Ukrainian “reaction”, only to motivate citizens of other countries to volunteer. As expected, these initiatives have had catastrophic consequences, as many people with no previous military experience are landing in Ukraine and dying quickly during the intense clashes.
On the other hand, there are indeed many trained and experienced military personnel arriving in the country to face Russian forces. Before this information about Afghan troops emerged, it had already been reported by sources that many of the British “volunteers” who were landing in Ukraine were actually secret special forces agents.
However, at no time did any military intelligence report indicate any real improvement in the combat capability of Kiev’s armed forces with the receipt of this type of foreign aid. The Russian troops neutralized the main strategic points of the enemy forces, so that any form of aid seems ineffective to provoke a reversal of the military scenario, serving only to induce a prolongation of the clashes.
The West is acting directly with its interventionism. It is no longer about logistical and material support, but about real human resources, as troops are being mobilized. This situation needs to be discussed, with clear condemnation against the American – and British – attitudes by as many countries as possible. Moscow has clearly prevented escalation and even reduced the intensity of the military actions in order to avoid civilian casualties in Ukraine, but if the West continues to intervene directly in the conflict, tougher measures will inevitably be taken.
