Abstract

The real overall number of the Italian foreign fighters currently in Ukraine is unknown. It is estimated that in the first years of the war (2014-2016), between 50 and 60 Italian foreign fighters have been in Ukraine, while the figure is likely fewer at the moment. At least 14 Italian foreign fighters are currently fighting in Ukraine, and the overwhelming majority (12) are re- lated to the extreme-right and the radical left. They have been present in the region prior to the current Russian invasion of late February 2022, and most of them have a history either in the private warfare or in the Italian army.
