Ukrainian Fighters Show of Solidarity


Images circulating online claim to show fighters in the Ukrainian armed services displaying the revolutionary flag of the Syria opposition in a sign of solidarity. Much of the burnt earth tactics and weaponry being used against the civilians in Ukraine were tested and used against the civilian population in Syrian for nearly a decade.

Many analysts highlighted the tactics used by the Russian military was developed in Syria and an apparent lack of concern or action from the international community against Russia war crimes in Syria, including the use of banned munitions, targeting schools, hospitals, healthcare and rescue workers as well as infrastructure like water and power systems all played a role in emboldening Putin in Ukraine.
