Pictures of Ukrainian Soldiers Holding the Line

 

Pictures of Ukrainian soldiers from earlier in the year.
They come in all shapes and sizes. There’s a mix of men and women who joined the army in the traditional way and those who transferred from the numerous militia units, which had sprung up in 2014. These militia units better known as “Volunteer Battalions,” are rightly credited with helping stop Russia’s initial invasion forces. All such units have now merged into the Ukrainian army.

On the front line, Ukraine refers to its forces in eastern Ukraine as part of the “Joint Forces Operation.” And after five long bloody years, there’s no doubt that Ukraine’s army has become one of the most battle hardened and experienced armies in the world.
