Half a thousand soldiers from Ukraine will study in Germany
Over the next five to eight weeks, 500 Ukrainian soldiers will undergo full combat training in Germany.
They will be trained by U.S. instructors, the Associated Press reported, citing the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley.
He plans to visit the training ground on Monday to see the programme in person.
The training is designed to sharpen the skills of Ukrainian forces so they are better prepared to attack and counter any Russian attack. The military will learn how to better move and coordinate their units in combat up to company and battalion size, using combined artillery, armoured vehicles and ground forces," the report said.
Milli said training the Ukrainian military, combined with supplying the country with new weapons, would be key to helping Ukraine regain its territories seized by Russia during the invasion.
