A first group of Ukrainian servicemen arrived in the UK in early July to take part in the training program announced by the British authorities, which includes the use of weapons, assistance on the battlefield, military tactics and legal issues in the framework of an armed conflict.

This week, the Finnish Ministry of Defense reported that it will send around twenty soldiers to the United Kingdom to collaborate in the military training program for members of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Previously, Canada also joined the program and confirmed that it would send more than 200 military personnel, mostly instructors, to the United Kingdom for more than four months.
