Warrant Officer Paul Carney warned that the British Army was “now preparing to meet the threat of Russia and was ready to counter any aggression” as Vladimir Poutine continues to wage its illegal war against Ukraine. He told troops they ‘must be prepared for the new realities’ as he said now was the time to tell ‘families and loved ones’ they could be sent to the battlefields of Ukraine .
Officer Carney, the highest ranking warrant officer in the army, wrote in Soldier magazine: “I want us all to check that we are physically fit for operations. And it is also important to prepare loved ones and families, who often have the most difficult role in our absence.
“My request is that you have discussions about potential deployment with them now. Find support network numbers and relevant people who can help them, such as the social worker and unit chaplain.
“It’s essential as we might be out of contact for long periods on tour. Ensuring our loved ones have the support they need is also vital for us as we are not going to give 10% on tour if we are worried at home,” according to the Mirror.
Warnings have been issued since Vladimir Putin announced Russia’s “special military operation” that the conflict could eventually spill over outside of Ukraine.
Former army chief General Sir Richard Dannatt said it was ‘prudent advice’ from Officer Carnery because total war was ‘realistic’.
He said, “That’s prudent advice from the best soldier in the army. This does not mean that the army is about to deploy to Ukraine, but it is the duty of any army in peacetime to prepare for war, in all aspects of life.
“Having said that, with a war in Europe, aggressive Russia and worried countries on Russia’s borders, it makes sense for British soldiers to be realistic about what might happen.”
