The UK is significantly expanding its curriculum to turn potentially tens of thousands of Ukrainian citizens into soldiers.
Sky News has learned.
Duration combat course has been increased from three weeks to five, allowing most of the training to take place in the UK, away from the threat of Russian missile strikes.
Training that took place at military bases in the north, southwest and southeast of England about 4,700 troops have already passed.
It is noted that the commanders intend to continue support as long as Ukraine needs new troops to fight the Russian invasion.
British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said that the training course “has developed rapidly and we are now extending it to five weeks to ensure the best possible training for Ukrainian soldiers who will soon be in active combat.”
“We must do everything possible to help them protect their homes from this illegal and unprovoked Russian invasion, and we will continue to do so for as long as it takes. We support Ukraine,” he stressed.
