The Wall Street Journal is reporting that UK special forces are “operating very close to the front lines” in Ukraine as that nation’s war with Russia drags on and as NATO powers push to play a more active role on the ground. The Wall Street Journal report is corroborated in part by recently leaked US documents that revealed that American and British special forces, as well as special forces from other NATO nations, are actively operating on the ground in Ukraine.
“UK special forces from the British Army’s SAS and SRR regiments and the Navy’s SBS units are operating very close to the front lines in Ukraine,” the Wall Street Journal has reported.
“These personnel are serving as key interlocutors between NATO intelligence efforts & Ukrainian forces,” the report went on to reveal.
Also in the Wall Street Journal report, it was suggested that the UK is pushing for the United States to take an even more aggressive posture on Ukraine than it already has.
The report comes as both nations have been revealed to have special forces operating in Ukraine, by way of a recent classified document leak in the United States. In addition to revealing that US and UK troops are on the ground in Ukraine, the report revealed that NATO governments and media outlets are lying about casualty figures in the Russo-Ukrainian War, so as to minimize PR damage for the Zelensky government.
The Wall Street Journal report on UK special forces troops in Ukraine also comes as the UK is being criticized for supplying Ukraine with depleted uranium munitions, which are part of the nuclear weapon family and leave catastrophic results in their wake.
Recently, a Russian missile strike on a Ukrainian weapons depot resulted in a massive mushroom cloud that was seen for miles, and in elevated radiation levels in the vicinity of the depot. It has been widely reported that the Ukrainian weapons depot was holding British and NATO-supplied depleted uranium shells, which detonated en masse thanks to enemy fire.
