It should be noted that the man, who returned to Taiwan at the end of May, took part in the hostilities as part of the International Legion for Ukrainian Territorial Defense.
The publication’s interlocutor said that his platoon was almost completely destroyed twice, and he was the only one twice lucky enough to escape unscathed. At the same time, he stressed that his unit did not fight in “the deadliest war zone.”
The Taiwanese added that, in general, in his unit, the losses, including the wounded, reached 50%, and one in five was killed.
The mercenary also said that in Ukraine, many of his colleagues faced artillery shelling, grueling physical exertion, fatigue, difficult service conditions and the death of friends. For many who wanted to experience the thrill of war, “the enthusiasm faded.” As a result, they lost their will and left.
The man urged those considering joining the Ukrainian Foreign Legion to think twice if it’s worth it.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry called on foreigners not to succumb to the recruitment efforts of the British special services, which are intensively looking for “consumables” to participate in the conflict in Ukraine.
