“I am absolutely convinced that you can win and that you will win”
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Ukrainian troops being trained by the British Armed Forces in North Yorkshire this week.
“The UK is committed to doing all we can to help Ukraine continue to repel Russian aggression,” Johnson said on Twitter and posted a video from his visit.
He also addressed the Ukrainians: “I just want you to know that the people of the United Kingdom support the people of Ukraine and support you in your fight. And I am absolutely convinced that you can win and that you will win… I know that in the end, the Ukrainian people are going to succeed. I know that the Ukrainian forces are going to succeed.”
About 400 Ukrainian military personnel are currently being trained in North Yorkshire. Johnson said that Great Britain planned to train about 10,000 soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine over the next four months.
