The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine plans that the trained servicemen will continue to operate as part of mobile teams of instructors and train gunners operating in the Donbass reports, RIA News.
Earlier in Kiev, they said that the United States spent over three years more than 600 million dollars on material and technical assistance to the Ukrainian army and the training of the military.
The United States is providing military assistance to Ukraine, but officially so far only in the form of uniforms and equipment, and not "lethal armament". In addition, American instructors train fighters of the National Guard of Ukraine.
So, Washington has spent 22 million dollars to equip the training center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Lviv and plans to provide Ukraine with another 20 million dollars to equip special forces training centers.
At the same time, for the last three years Kiev has been seeking the US weapons. In July, Deputy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, Paul Selva, announced that the Pentagon is continuing to study this issue.
