U.S. special forces arrive in Ukraine to help AFU soldiers

The U.S. Army will provide the Ukrainian military with training and instructing assistance.

The U.S. Army in the number of representatives of the 173rd Airborne Brigade arrived in Ukraine to train the Ukrainian military. This was stated by U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, Joinfo.ua reports.

On March 20, U.S. Department of Defense announced that about 290 American army men from the 173rd Airborne Brigade from the Italian city of Vicenza would train the Ukrainian servicemen in Yavoriv near the Polish border.

This initiative was joined by Canada, which has repeatedly sent non-lethal assistance to Ukraine.

Now the government of the Maple Leaf Country is going to announce sending Canadian troops to Ukraine. They should join the mission of military training under the guidance of the United States.

Earlier, it was reported that next year the White House would allocate less funding for the European Reassurance Initiative program, but increase expenses for military training.
