SOHR exclusive | “Media reports of the Eighth Brigade joining war in Ukraine alongside Russian forces untrue,” says Ibrahim Al-Jebbawi

In an exclusive statement to SOHR, the regime opponent politician, Dr. Ibrahim Al-Jebbawi has confirmed that the reports circulating on some websites and media outlets about the Eighth Brigade of the Russian-backed Fifth Corps leaving Syria to join fighting alongside Russian forces in its war against Ukraine are completely untrue. Al-Jebbawi has stated that he is on contact with the Eighth Brigade which dismissed these reports.

 

Al-Jebbawi has also stated that the Eighth Brigade has not received any orders by the Russians to join the war in Ukraine.

 

Russia had accused the USA of “recruiting and training Syrian fighters in Al-Tanaf base to join fighting alongside the Ukrainian forces against Russian forces.”
