The Government of New Zealand will deploy up to 30 instructors to Britain to train Ukrainian forces in the use of L119 105mm howitzers.

“We have been clear throughout Russia’s assault on Ukraine, that such a blatant attack on innocent lives and the sovereignty of another country is wrong…Our response has not only included the condemnation of Russia, but practical support for Ukraine,” said Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern, The Defense Post reports.

Her cabinet agreed to deploy up to 30 members of the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) to Britain to train Ukrainian forces in the use of L119 105mm howitzers.

The deployment will run until the end of July and about 230 Ukrainian service members would be trained.

New Zealand previously deployed a C130 Hercules aircraft and NZDF personnel to Europe to provide intelligence, transportation and logistics support to Ukraine.
