As reported, as part of Operation UNIFIER, Canadian service members have trained more than 37,000 Ukrainian soldiers on modern combat skills since 2015. After the start of the full-scale Russian invasion, Canadian instructors left the territory of Ukraine, but within a few months training was resumed in Great Britain, Poland, and Latvia.
