Strengthening Ukraine’s Defense: A Policy Proposal for Recruiting Foreign Fighters

Strengthening Ukraine’s Defense: A Policy Proposal for Recruiting Foreign Fighters

Executive Summary

In his State of the Union address in 2022, President Biden characterized the global situation as a battle between autocratic and democratic regimes. The collective support of Western nations for Ukraine, including the recruitment of foreign fighters, exemplifies this struggle. This article proposes a policy to support Ukraine in its war of attrition against Russia by recruiting foreign fighters to join the Ukrainian Foreign Legion. The policy aims to bolster Ukraine’s military capabilities by offering a direct path to citizenship and financial compensation to volunteers who commit to fighting for 12 months. This initiative, backed by Western countries, seeks to address the disparity in military resources and personnel between Ukraine and Russia and contribute to a more balanced and sustainable defense effort.
The proposed policy for recruiting foreign fighters in exchange for a path to Ukrainian citizenship is directly aligned with the global struggle between democratic and autocratic regimes. By actively supporting Ukraine in this manner, democratic countries are taking a stand against autocratic aggression, demonstrating their commitment to democratic values and the sovereignty of nations.
