The U.S. is planning to launch an extended exercise for the Ukrainian military in Germany as early as January.
This was stated by the deputy press secretary of the Pentagon Sabrina Singh at a briefing.
"I can't tell you if we've started already but I can tell you we'll start this month. And that's for a portion of the collective training," she said.
Singh stressed the importance of training defenders in the new weapons that have been provided to Ukraine by international partners.
"Now, that equipment is one thing. Using the equipment is another. And so you've seen, again, many of our allies but us, you know, step forward to offer some additional collective training, as it relates to the use of that equipment," she said.-
As a reminder, the U.S. plans to train the Ukrainian military in the use of Bradley infantry fighting vehicles in late January, which could be included in the next aid package.
In addition, the U.S. will begin training Ukrainian fighters on the Patriot air defense system this month.
