The scale of training provided to the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as the emphasis on training specifically for urban combat, speaks a lot already

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that about five thousand Ukrainian soldiers have already completed a training course in Great Britain. For an illustration of the scale, five thousand people are the total number of troops in a mechanized brigade.

As the General Staff notes, the fighters have undergone training under the guidance of foreign specialists from the UK, Canada, the Netherlands and New Zealand, and the program – called operation "INTERFLEX" from now on – will only expand further.

During training, fighters receive basic knowledge, skills and abilities of the entire spectrum of military training complex, which includes shooting, tactical and psychological training, engineering and medical training. It also means learning of offensive and defensive combat in urban conditions.

Training of junior commanders under the INTERFLEX program will be expanded as well, GenStaff informs.

We should also note that other allies of Ukraine are actively joining the training program. In particular, Denmark will start training the soldiers of the Armed Forces on its territory in the near future. The Czech Republic has already put forward a similar proposal.
