Recruitment of IS militants in Ukraine

Russia claims that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is recruiting Syrian IS fighters to fight on behalf of Ukraine.

Russia’s Sputnik news agency says the CIA is actively working to send Daesh

(ISIL or ISIS) militants detained in Kurdish-controlled prisons and camps in northeastern Syria to Ukraine.

Sputnik News quoted a source as saying that the CIA was moving to various locations in

Europe in the name of conducting additional investigations into Daesh militants.

Thus far, the United States has taken control of several high-ranking leaders and about 90 Daesh militants.

Most of them are citizens of European Union countries and Iraq.

Among them are some immigrants from Chechnya and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China.

They are currently gathering in the territory of al-Tanfe, a US military base in Syria.

According to a report published by Russia’s Arabic-language RT Arabic television news network,

about 500 Daesh terrorists from the Caucasus and Central Asian countries are preparing to carry out sabotage and

terrorist attacks against Russian military units in Syria and Eastern European countries.

As part of this, they are currently training in US camps.

A number of Daesh terrorists have admitted that they are working closely with US military forces based

at the al-Tanaf base in the central Syrian province of Homs to carry out various terrorist and subversive activities.

In a confession aired on Syrian state television in May 2020,

several Daesh members said US forces had instructed them to target Syrian government troops,

including the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, the Tias military airbase (T-4 airbase), and the Shayar gas field.🔱
