WASHINGTON-The Pentagon has begun training former Afghan fighter pilots who fled to the United States for transfer to Ukraine via Poland, according to Russian news agency TASS.
“The Pentagon is recruiting for Ukraine former Afghan combat training pilots who fled to the United States a year ago with the Americans,” said an unnamed military source.
He explained that “their training starts now in California, after which it is planned to transfer them to Ukraine via Poland.”
However, the source consulted by TASS clarified that this training includes all Afghans who have served in special forces. “They are also invited to receive training and enter into a contract providing for further employment in the war zone in Ukraine,” he said.
