The US Plans to Train Ukrainian Military

Bridget Brink in Washington discussed with the Pentagon, the White House and Congress the possibility of training Ukrainian soldiers

US ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink returned from Washington today with good news for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"I just got back from Washington because the secretary of state was calling all the ambassadors for consultations, we do this every year, and I took this opportunity to consult with him, with leaders in the Pentagon, the White House, and Congress," Bridget Brink.

According to the ambassador, the United States is spending quite a lot of time working on plans for more and faster assistance to Ukraine to help Ukraine's armed forces push the Russian occupation closer to the border. One of the instruments of US assistance is the training of Ukrainian servicemen.

"I can't give an exact figure or plan, but I can say that I have spoken to Pentagon officials about it," the ambassador Brink.

Bridget Brink's schedule included talks with diplomats from other countries, including the ambassador of Ukraine, US congressmen, Mark Milley, and chairpersons of the American-Ukrainian business council.

We remind you that on June 17, Boris Johnson proposed to organize numerous exercises for 10.000 Ukrainian soldiers every 4 months.
