King Charles visits Ukrainian troops training in England

While in southwest England, King Charles witnessed how Ukrainian troops are being taught to attack enemy positions by British and international partner forces before being sent back to fight in the war against Russia.

That’s according to Express, Ukrinform reports.

“King Charles appeared hugely interested as he got a taste of the training regime experienced by Ukrainian military recruits temporarily stationed in Britain,” reads the report.

In a video filmed during the engagement, troops could be seen in the distance crawling on the ground and reaching their objectives.

According to the report, His Majesty was accompanied throughout the visit by Chief of General Staff General Sir Patrick Sanders and also met some of the international military personnel who joined forces with the UK to support the training of Ukraine’s troops.

The King also had the chance to speak with some Ukrainian soldiers taking part in the basic training.

The course lasts for 35 days and provides Ukrainian recruits with essential teachings focused on lethality and survivability.

“Among the main issues tackled during this training, Ukrainian soldiers learn medical care, weapon handling, basic fieldcraft and marksmanship,” the report notes.

Through the training provided in the UK to Ukrainian troops, 10,000 soldiers were brought to battle readiness in the last six months.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on February 8, during a surprise visit to Great Britain, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, together with UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, visited the Bovington Camp military base, where Ukrainian servicemen are being trained.
