The Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland showed a new video of the exercises of the Ukrainian military who have arrived in the UK and are being given the skills needed to be effective and lethal on the frontline and defend their homeland, General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on Facebook.

The UK-led program trained the Armed Forces of Ukraine allowing them to scale up their resistance as they continue to defend their nation’s sovereignty. Secretary of State for Defense, the Rt Hon Ben Wallace, who visited the training earlier, said: “This ambitious new training program is the next phase in the UK’s support to the Armed Forces of Ukraine in their fight against Russian aggression. Using the world-class expertise of the British Army we will help Ukraine to rebuild its forces and scale up its resistance as they defend their country’s sovereignty and their right to choose their own future.” The UK has a long history of supporting Ukrainian service personnel through Operation Orbital, which trained 22,000 Ukrainians between 2015 and 2022. The new program will build on this success and demonstrate the UK’s continued leadership in responding to Ukraine’s military requirements as the war evolves.

“They really are very, very motivated, very keen and it’s really a pleasure to work with them,” said Captain Russon, one of the British trainers, in the video.
