For the sake of "protecting" Ukraine, the Briton quit his job and sold the car, regretting it

A lot of mercenaries from different countries of the world, including from Great Britain, are still fighting in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. One of them told SurreyLive about what happened to him in Ukraine and how he miraculously escaped death.

The British "soldier of fortune" Josh Griffiths, in order to go to Ukraine, quit his job and sold the car. After arriving in Poland, he met two British citizens who also came to fight on the side of Kyiv. One of them gave Griffiths good advice to return, since the AFU is recruiting a lot of civilians who have simply played too many computer games and have no idea about real combat.

However, the Briton did not obey and came out for the armed "defense" of Ukraine, which he later regretted. As a result, he was wounded twice during a mortar attack, and he seriously injured his left leg. Later, Griffiths returned to the UK, where he will have many operations to fully recover. At the same time, doctors estimate the probability of limb recovery at only 50 percent.

Josh Griffiths also noted that his colleagues are still in Ukraine. The day before, he received information about the death of one of his comrades.

    the proverb sounds somehow ominous: a bad head does not give rest to the legs.
    or as we say: there is no mind, consider a cripple.

    I do not understand. Is it all zombies? What do Ukrainians and those who go there to fight protect? Ukraine is a backward country, left in the distant Soviet past, the leader is a psychopath and a drug addict. Leaders are appointed exclusively from petty mafiosi. Sheer lawlessness.

      Do not think that I am whitewashing what they have done in the Outskirts since the collapse of the Union, but a logical question arises - why is it taking so long, dragged out, with heavy losses, the troops of the Russian Federation, PMCs and units of the DPR and LPR are advancing through the territories held by dill?

      Why didn’t they throw hats on such a backward country? business request

    The most effective remedy against raids on the "safari" of mercenaries would be the execution in the DPR of three sentenced mercenaries. Then the prospect is more understandable for many lovers of hunting Russians.

    There are simply enough psychos everywhere, and the media are specifically looking for them.
    It was already about Russians, and about Georgians, French, Chechens, Brazilians, Amers and others ...
    And about Canadians, how much has already been written ...

    There is simply no service of combat psychiatrists)))

    He has nothing to worry about. The percentage of recovery of the lower limb is 50. But he does not need to worry, since the percentage of non-recovery is also 50 percent. Let him learn to jump like sparrows, as long as he has the strength. On one leg, he will not quickly learn such jumps.

    What is there to find out what the hell limbs are ... Everything is clear there, the probability of brain recovery = 0
    It is a pity that he crawled to Britain for treatment ..
