US Recruits ISIS Terrorists to Fight in Ukraine

US recruits ISIS terrorists to fight in Ukraine – Moscow
Intelligence agency claims that Washington is “ready to use any means,” including hiring ISIS fighters as mercenaries

The US has been “actively recruiting” terrorists to fight in Ukraine, Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) claimed on Tuesday, saying that it illustrates Washington’s readiness “to use any means to achieve its geopolitical goals.”

The SVR revealed in a statement that, according to the intelligence it is receiving, “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 American military base in Syria called al-Tanf, which is located close to the borders with Jordan and Iraq. According to its sources, this base and the surrounding area have turned into a kind of terrorist “hub,” where up to 500 ISIS and other jihadists can be “retrained” simultaneously. SVR claimed that last month 60 ISIS militants, who had been released from prisons controlled by the Syrian Kurds, were transferred to al-Tanf “with a view to subsequent transfer to Ukrainian territory.”

The SVR specified that during a training course at al-Tanf the militants are instructed on how to use anti-tank missile systems, reconnaissance and strike drones, advanced communications and surveillance equipment.

In the SVR’s opinion, this data confirms that “the United States is ready to use any means to achieve its geopolitical goals, not excluding sponsoring international terrorist groups.”

The intelligence service concluded by saying that the American administration does not consider the consequences of such actions, “even when it comes to threats to the security of European allies and even to the lives of the Americans.”

Washington has insisted that “there are no US soldiers in Ukraine.”

Meanwhile, the presence of American troops on Syrian territory at al-Tanf base, which the SVR mentions in its statement, has long been considered by both Moscow and Damascus as illegal. The previous US administration pledged that American forces would leave northeastern Syria but only after ISIS militants are defeated and the Kurds protected.

Then-National Security Advisor John Bolton made it clear that another task of the US forces at al-Tanf was to counter Iranian influence in the region.

In October 2021, there were reports that, according to Israeli defense sources, about 350 military members and civilians were still using al-Tanf, including some British and French forces that were described as “intelligence experts.”

  1. The four biggest suppliers of terrorism and terrorists are the U.S., Britain, Israel, and Saudi Arabia! I’m sure they can get a boat load from Libya alone!

        • They can actually thank Teddy Roosevelt for that insanity. He was the bullshit artist who lied about charging up the San Juan Hill. Many believe Roosevelt had more to do with America’s sojourn into colonialism than President McKinley who was assassinated. But, after WW2 they became bullies on steroids.

          • I agree Teddy was an empire builder, but US expansionism started with the move westward in North America. George Washington was a surveyer, and he scarfed up land in the Ohio River Valley, then made war on the Amerindians to secure his claims. He started the French and Indian War, much to the dismay of his handlers in Britain, as the UK was fighting the Seven Years’ War at the same time. It took Britain a long time to recover from the resource drain. Adam Smith’s “The Wealth of Nations” refers frequently to “the late war”, which ended in 1763. That’s probably why the British parliament wanted to tax the colonies so heavily–to pay off the debts from all the wars.


            • Actually, the French and Indian wars began when New France was created, as early as the middle 17th century. It had more to do with furs than anything else in the beginning. The first clashes were with the Dutch and the French and their Native allies. Of course, the English took it to a different level. The French and Indian wars ended when Wolfe conquered Quebec in 1759. But, back to T.Roosevelt. He was a great admirer of Britain’s colonial empire. You could say he didn’t agree with Thomas Jefferson’s writings on noninterference or James Monroe’s doctrine!
