NATO military instructors have trained thousands of Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel for street fighting. In the five years since 2015, approximately 16 Ukrainian military personnel have been trained for combat in urban areas.
This was announced at a press conference by the commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Alexander Syrsky.
The Ukrainian general claims that a total of foreign officers who are part of international training missions have participated in the military training of 19 soldiers of the Ukrainian army. Thus, most of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who were trained by Western instructors, received the knowledge and skills of conducting combat operations in the city.
The direction of our cooperation is the further development of the system of training centers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, primarily the ground forces.
- said Syrsky.
Ruslan Khomchak, the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army, spoke earlier about the preparation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the storming of cities. What settlements are planning to storm the Armed Forces, he did not specify, but noted that the armed forces of Ukraine should prepare "for any development of events."
It is not hard to guess that, speaking of the storming of cities, the Ukrainian military means settlements located on the territory of the DPR and LPR.
