Johnson confirmed training of Ukrainian army by British instructors

The Ukrainian military who have arrived in the United Kingdom are being trained in the use of Mastiff, Husky and Wolfhound combat armoured vehicles – as reported by TASS with reference to PA Agency


As a representative of the Office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, more than twenty servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces arrived in the United Kingdom last week and are now studying how to operate Samaritan ambulances, Sultan armoured command vehicles, and Samson armoured recovery vehicles. In general, London will send about 120 units of such military equipment to Ukraine.

In the coming future, the number of Ukrainian military undergoing training in the UK may increase. Johnson's Office does not consider such actions contribute to ‘escalation of the situation’ in Ukraine. On April 21st, the UK Prime Minister informed that British instructors are training Ukrainians in Poland in the use of Western air defence systems.
