Ukraine as a “battle laboratory” shows how to fight in 21st century

Jul 18, 2023

The territory of Ukraine is now a "battle laboratory" where Western and Ukrainian-made weapons are being experimented with to defend against Russian invasion.

This was stated by British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, Sky News reports.


According to him, Ukraine's "thirst to survive" meant Kyiv has scrapped peacetime rules and regulations to trial new weapons and modifications offered by its allies. This innovation was also benefitting Ukraine's allies.

"They've had to take risk and experiment on things they might not know work or not, and they have become a battle lab for their own forces, and that showed us the way... I regret the circumstances that it had to happen, but it has shown the way about how things have to be done in the 21st century in a new battlefield," the defense secretary said.
