In response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, the UK government is providing Ukraine with military assistance in the amount of £2.3 billion. This includes a commitment to spearhead the innovative program that aims to train up to 10 000 Ukrainian recruits in the UK. The first rotation of Ukrainian troops recently arrived in the UK. Training will take place at military training grounds in the North East, South West and the South-East regions. The exercises will be conducted by units of the 11th Security Force Assistance Brigade", - Ben Wallace told.
