First group of Ukrainian military arrived in Britain for training

The Ukrainian military will undergo special military training in the UK, with the first group of soldiers having already arrived on the British territory – as noted by British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, TASS reports


Ben Wallace did not give exact dates for the arrival of the Ukrainian military on the British territory but noted that the troops have arrived recently. The training will take place as part of a ‘programme to train up to 10,000 Ukrainian recruits’. For several weeks, Ukrainians will be trained in military courses ‘based on the basic training for British soldiers’.

Last month, British PM Boris Johnson suggested that Ukraine send its military to the United Kingdom for training. It is assumed that up to 10,000 fighters will be able to undergo military training in Britain every four months. Ukrainian soldiers will be trained in military skills, the rules for providing emergency assistance and disarming enemy explosive devices, as well as the basics of cybersecurity.
