THE RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF DEFENCE REPORTS ELIMINATION OF FOREIGN SOLDIERS IN UKRAINE: LIBERIA, KENYA, NIGERIA, ALGERIA AND LIBYA REPRESENTED AMONG CASUALTIES

Date:

It says over 13,000 foreign fighters were identified, with leading countries cited as Poland, the United States, Georgia, and Canada. Verification of information remains unconfirmed by international observers.

The recent announcement by the Russian Ministry of Defence regarding the involvement of foreign soldiers in the conflict in Ukraine has raised concerns and shed light on the dynamics of the ongoing war.

Among the notable details revealed was the elimination of two out of five Liberian soldiers reportedly fighting for Ukraine. Russia also highlighted the presence of five Kenyan soldiers on the opposing side of the conflict.

The disclosure that a total of 13,387 foreign soldiers have entered Ukraine since February 2024, with representation from 13 African countries, underscores the complex and international nature of the conflict. It’s crucial to note that these soldiers are operating in a private capacity and do not officially represent their respective countries’ Armed Forces. Moreover, Russia’s statement lacks a provision for independent verification by international observers, raising questions about the transparency and accuracy of the information provided.

Kenya emerged as the sole East African Community member with soldiers in Ukraine, while Ethiopia, despite not being part of the EAC, reportedly had one soldier present in the conflict zone. Nigeria stands out as the leading African country in terms of the number of soldiers deployed to Ukraine, with Russia claiming that 47 Nigerian soldiers have been eliminated thus far.

Algeria, Guinea, South Africa, Senegal, Zimbabwe, and Equatorial Guinea are among the African nations mentioned in the report, with varying numbers of soldiers deployed and casualties suffered. Tunisia and Libya were also named as having soldiers in Ukraine, with no reported casualties among Kenyan soldiers. The Russian Ministry of Defence highlighted Poland, the United States, Georgia, and Canada as leading countries with significant numbers of soldiers engaged in the conflict.

As the situation continues to evolve, the presence of foreign soldiers in Ukraine underscores the complexities of the conflict and the global ramifications of the ongoing war. The impact on African countries, both in terms of the soldiers deployed and the casualties incurred, highlights the need for a comprehensive and peaceful resolution to the crisis.
