US mulls training Ukrainian military: Ambassador

Kiev, July 5 (TIWN) The US is considering the possibility of providing training to the Ukrainian military, says Washington's Ambassador to Kiev Bridget Brink.

“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.  The US is working to provide Kiev with more aid designed to strengthen Ukraine’s positions on the frontline, she added.  On June 15, the US Embassy in Ukraine said that the Washington government had provided $4.6 billion worth of defense aid for Kiev in the face of Russia’s ongoing war.  According to the mission, 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.
