US and its allies have trained more than 4,000 Ukrainian defenders
“Collective training is ongoing throughout Europe and is dramatically increasing Ukrainian combined armed organizations, all told, since January, the US military has trained over 1000 Ukrainians, bringing the total trained by the United States to just over 4000,” Lt. General Douglas Sims II, director of operations for the Joint Chief of Staff, said.
According to him, Ukrainian soldiers will soon finish training at Fort Still, Oklahoma, on operating the Patriot missile system. “We are confident the Ukrainians will employ Patriots with the same expertise they are demonstrating every day with their current air defense capabilities,” Lt. General Douglas Sims II added.
