Ukrainian military training in UK

Since the first months of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been undergoing various training programs in the UK. For example, a special training ground was built in the UK to maximize the effectiveness of military training. Its equipment and infrastructure will reportedly allow them to gain experience in urban warfare.

In addition, earlier the training process of the Ukrainian military was shown on video. The UK Ministry of Defense also reported that the country has trained 33,000 soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine since 2022.

Recently, the UK Ministry of Defense showed how the Ukrainian military is being trained as part of Operation Interflex.
