British military forces have begun training Ukrainian soldiers in a new program aimed to help ensure victory in their fight against Russia.


This article by Anna MacSwan, writing for The Guardian, makes the following points:
  • Up to 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers will arrive in the UK for specialist military training lasting several weeks.
  • Defence Secretary, Ben Wallace, described the programme as the next phase of Britain’s support to the Ukrainian army.
  • The training will give volunteer recruits with little or no military experience the skills to be effective in frontline combat.
  • The training is based on the UK’s basic soldier training course.
  • Ukraine is losing up to 200 soldiers daily, meaning that training reinforcements away from the threat of Russian attacks is critical to the country’s war effort.
