Johnson announces ‘Great Military Training Program’ in Kiev

Kiev (Reuters) – The United Kingdom is training Ukraine to train thousands of new and existing Ukrainian soldiers as part of a “major military training program”. When the two met in Kiev on Friday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson personally conveyed this to Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Zhelensky. This is Johnson’s second visit to the Ukrainian capital since the Russian invasion on February 24.

According to a government report, the British training operation is capable of training 10,000 soldiers every 120 days. The plan, led by the British Army, was to allow the Ukrainians to “speed up their deployment, rebuild their armed forces and increase their resistance.” If Ukraine accepts this offer, Western allies may also be invited to join the program.

The United Kingdom has now pledged 1.3 billion (over £ 1.5 billion) in economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, including more than 5,000 anti-tank missiles, long-range missiles and self-propelled guns.
