US to expand combat training for Ukrainian troops

The US announced an expansion of training for Ukrainian armed forces in Europe “to include joint maneuver and combined arms operations training,” according to the Defense Department.

The US has already trained about 3,100 Ukrainian troops on how to use and maintain certain weapons and other equipment, including howitzers, armored vehicles and HIMARS.

The US will train approximately 500 Ukrainians per month starting in January 2023. The program will be conducted in Germany by US Army Europe and Africa Command’s 7th Army Training Command, said Pentagon press secretary Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder.
