UK aims to offer military training inside Ukraine, minister says

Britain’s government plans to send military instructors to Ukraine and expand the training of Ukrainian armed forces. Currently, the training takes place in Britain or other Western countries to avoid direct conflict with Russia. Over the past year, Britain has already provided military training courses to approximately 20,000 Ukrainians and intends to continue training a similar number. In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, British defence minister Grant Shapps discussed the possibility of offering military training within Ukraine after consulting with British military chiefs. Shapps stated that he wants to bring the training closer to Ukraine, particularly in the western part of the country. He also expressed hope that British defence companies, such as BAE Systems, would establish arms factories in Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy aims to transform Ukraine’s defence industry into a major military hub by partnering with Western weapons manufacturers to enhance arms supplies for Kyiv’s counteroffensive against Russia. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak appointed Shapps as defence minister on September 1, following the resignation of his predecessor Ben Wallace.
