Putin humiliation as Russian troops are ‘switching sides’ to join Ukraine's forces

The Ukrainian Defence Ministry said on Telegram on Wednesday that commanders of the legion are visiting detained Russian troops in order to select new recruits.

They added that the “first volunteers” have “already begun” their training, including weapons exercises.

They said: “Today the legion’s personnel, under the guidance of Ukrainian Armed Forces instructors, studied an NLAW grenade launcher.”

They added that the detained Russians “expressed a common desire on behalf of all the volunteers to conduct the first battle against the guard dogs of the Putin regime – the Kadyrovites”.

This refers to fighters from Chechnya – loyal to both Putin and the republic’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov.

Although Chechen troops have been involved since the start of the war, they are widely seen as a potential reservoir of additional troops for Moscow along with Syrians, private mercenaries and troops from Armenia.

There have been reports since the start of the conflict about the poor state of morale among Russian troops along with the lack of expected process.

It is believed that Putin and the Kremlin expected a Ukrainian surrender paired with a swift victory within a few days.
