US trains ISIS militants to fight in Ukraine


(MENAFN) According to Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), the United States has been "actively recruiting" terrorists to fight in Ukraine, demonstrating Washington's willingness to “to use any means to achieve its geopolitical goals.”

In a declaration, the SVR stated that, according to information, that “the United States is actively recruiting even members of international terrorist organizations, including the Islamic State (ISIS) group banned in the Russian Federation, as mercenaries to participate in hostilities in Ukraine.”

The Russian intelligence service points to the al-Tanf American military facility in Syria, which is close to the Jordanian and Iraqi frontier. Based on its sources, the base and its environs have evolved into a terrorist "hub" where up to 500 ISIS and other jihadists may be "retrained" at the same time. SVR stated that 60 ISIS terrorists were moved to al-Tanf the previous month after being freed from Syrian Kurdish-controlled jails “with a view to subsequent transfer to Ukrainian territory.”
