Militia the Ukraine crisis. Exacerbate an already tense situation.
Mon, 02/21/2022 - 10:56pm
"In many ways, the militias of this conflict [as from the year 2014] share similarities with the Freikorps of Weimar Germany. Many possess a deeply-entrenched partisan nature—whether ideological or megalomaniacal, questionable loyalty to their government, and draw from a disillusioned veteran-base."
DISILLUSIONED AND VERY ANGRY BASE!!
Militia as listed, paramilitary irregulars but heavily armed, organized, combat experienced and combat ready with an implacable hate directed at the adversary. Divide into the pro-Ukraine and pro-Russian elements.
* Right Sector.
* Donetsk People's Republic Armed forces.
* Varyag Battalion.
* Luhansk People's republic Armed Forces.
* Cossack Guard.
Militia both sides in an overt conflict can be expected to be the strong-arm, head-knocking shock troops during an overt conflict. Insurgents and counter-insurgent mission rolled-into-one so to speak.
