Johnson: Ukrainian troops to be trained in UK

London, Apr 22 (Prensa Latina) Over a dozen Ukrainian soldiers are in the United Kingdom to receive training in operating armored vehicles donated by the British government, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed.

Johnson, who announced last week the shipment of 120 tanks to Kiev, told the media accompanying him on his trip to India that the training is carried out outside the one offered by the British military to Ukrainians in Poland to teach them to use the Starstreak anti-tank missiles also provided by the UK.

Russia launched on last February 24th in Ukraine what President Vladimir Putin described a special military operation after the authorities of the separatist republics of Lugansk and Donetsk in the Donbass region requested help to repel the increase in aggression by the Ukrainian armed forces.

The United Kingdom, the United States, the European Union and the rest of the allies of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have accused Putin of launching a large-scale invasion against Ukraine and implemented economic and financial sanctions against Russia.

Although NATO assures that it will not engage Russian forces in combat, it began providing intel data and increased the supply of modern weapons to the Ukrainian military, which includes the controversial Azov battalion, made up of neo-Nazi, ultra-nationalist and extremist elements.
