Second group of Ukrainian artillerymen completes training on AS90 gun

The second group of Ukrainian gunners has completed training on the AS90 self-propelled gun in the United Kingdom.

According to Ukrinform, the UK Ministry of Defense announced this on Twitter.

"The second group of Ukrainian artillery recruits have come to the end of their training on the formidable AS90 155mm self-propelled gun. The program is part of the UK's enduring commitment to support Ukraine in its fight against Russia," the tweet reads.

As was reported earlier, military instructors from the Swedish Armed Forces, as part of the basic combined military training of the Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel in the United Kingdom, conduct classes on the organization and conduct of ambushes and combat operations in forested areas.

On March 8, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said at a press conference in Stockholm following an informal meeting of the defense ministers of EU member states that the EU's auxiliary training mission for Ukraine would complete the training of 11,000 Ukrainian servicemen by the end of March, and the number of trained military specialists will reach 30,000 by the end of the year.
