US planning to train Ukrainian military: ambassador

According to, Bridget Brink, Washington’s Ambassador to Kiev, the US is considering providing military training to Ukraine.

“I can’t tell the exact number or the plan, but I can say that I talked about it with officials from the Pentagon,” Xinhua news agency quoted Brink as saying.

She added that the US is working to provide Kiev with more aid aimed at strengthening Ukraine’s frontline positions.

On June 15, the US Embassy in Ukraine announced that the US government had provided $4.6 billion in defence aid to Kiev in response to Russia’s ongoing war.

The US sent to Ukraine 26,500 Javelin and other anti-armour systems, 1,400 Stinger anti-aircraft systems, 108 howitzers, and 75,000 sets of body armour and helmets, according to the mission.

Ukraine’s Defense Minister, Oleksii Reznikov, announced on June 23 that his country had received High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) from the United States.

Since Russia’s invasion of Kiev on February 24, the United States has provided approximately $6.9 billion in security assistance to Ukraine.

The most recent $820 million in US assistance, announced on July 1, includes advanced anti-aircraft and aerial defence systems, as well as additional ammunition for advanced rocket systems.
