The United Kingdom sent dozens of special forces to Ukraine amid fears of Russian invasion.

More than 100 British elite troops have been sent to Ukraine as military advisors. Soldiers from SAS (Special Air Service), SBS (Special Boat Service), Special Reconnaissance Regiment and Special Forces Support Group deployed to Ukraine last week.

The soldiers should train Ukrainian soldiers in counter-insurgency tactics, sniping and sabotage. They prepare Ukrainian forces not only for the possible invasion, but also for the resistance later on.

The large deployment of special forces to Ukraine was possible because the British troops no longer operate in Afghanistan.
