NYP provides info on how to fight in Ukraine
A New York Post article explains how foreigners from all over the world can apply to volunteer for fighting Russia in Ukraine.
In an attempt to fuel people to take part in the ongoing tensions in Ukraine through an allegedly "official" and "legal" process, US newspaper New York Post published an article dubbed "Want to go fight in Ukraine? Here’s how to apply."
This is no joke - the article explains specifically how foreigners from all over the world can apply to volunteer for fighting Russia in Ukraine.
The newspaper confirmed that the Ukrainian authorities Saturday launched a website "where foreigners can apply directly if they want to go to Ukraine and fight against Russian invaders."
It also noted that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky announced receiving thousands of applications from foreign fighters to engage in confrontations against the Russian military, expecting more than 16,000 mercenaries to head to Ukraine in the upcoming days.
The foreign fighters will join a foreign legion unit that will become part of Ukraine's "Territorial Defense Force, a newly established branch of the Armed Forces," highlighted the New York Post
Shamefully, the process requires prospective foreign fighters to contact the Ukrainian embassy or consulate in their country, which, in its turn, will provide them with the necessary information.
The volunteers will then "undergo an interview with a Ukrainian military attaché and receive a special visa," according to the newspaper.
Ukrainian officials claim that joining the so-called "International Legion" to fight Russia is "official" and "legal".
Similarly, in a war-igniting tweet, BBC reporter Jeremy Bowen published a “where to throw a Molotov cocktail” guide amid the Ukraine crisis, which reflects the Western media's hypocrisy in glorifying the Ukrainian "resistance", while labeling Palestinian resistance as "terrorism".

This comes after the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform reported that 3,000 US volunteers are ready to arrive in Ukraine, amid Russia's ongoing military operation in the country.
Among the US volunteers are army veterans "with combat experience gained in Iraq and other hotspots around the world."
US to give more than $1B in assistance to Ukraine
It is noteworthy that during US President Joe Biden's first State of the Union address delivered on Tuesday, he reaffirmed plans to continue supporting Ukraine against Russia while providing multiple forms of assistance worth $1 billion.
Although Ukraine will be receiving hefty assistance, Biden ruled out any present or future military participation in the conflict.
"Let me be clear, our forces are not engaged and will not engage in conflict with Russian forces in Ukraine," Biden claimed.
Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar announced Saturday that more than 100,000 volunteers have already registered to join the force.
Last Wednesday, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced that mercenaries from 16 countries are on their way to the country and announced that Kiev had obtained weapons from 19 countries.
