The Netherlands will join the program to help train Ukrainian soldiers in the United Kingdom.
Ukraine’s Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov wrote on his Twitter account, Ukrinform reports.
“The Netherlands has joined the UK-led program of training servicemembers of Ukraine’s Armed Forces. Dutch personnel will start their mission this August. The more well-trained fighters we have, the closer our victory,” he wrote.
The defense minister thanked Dutch Defense Minister Kajsa Ollongren for friendship and support.
As Ukrinform reported, the first group of Ukrainian military personnel arrived in the UK in early July to take part in a new major military training program. The course includes training in weapons handling, battlefield first aid, fieldcraft, patrol tactics, and the law of armed conflict.
Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway also joined the program to help train the Ukrainian military.
