An Patriots – Ukrainian soldiers are trained in the US


As reported, the German and US governments supply Ukraine with Patriot air defense systems. The US Department of Defense, the Pentagon, confirmed on Tuesday that the associated training of the armed forces must take place at a military base in the state of Oklahoma. 90 to 100 people will participate in the first training.

That’s how many it takes to operate a Patriot anti-aircraft system, according to the Pentagon. Nevertheless, the training should only take a few months – considerably less than training for the weapon system usually costs. Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder said the program will be accelerated to return Ukrainian forces to the war as soon as possible.

The first training should start next week. Basic training is scheduled at Fort Stil military base in Oklahoma. The US Army also has an artillery school there. Earlier it was speculated that Ukrainians could be trained in Germany, for example at the Grafenwöhr military training ground in Bavaria. This has already been applied in other weapon systems.

Patriot anti-aircraft system promised for Christmas
The German government recently announced that it would make a Patriot system available to the Ukrainian military. This weapon can repel cruise missiles, aircraft, drones and missiles at a great distance. The US government had promised the country a Patriot system just before Christmas. The United States is considered Ukraine’s main ally. They continue to support the country with military equipment and money.

Russia is fighting with NATO
“The events in Ukraine are not a clash between Moscow and Kiev – this is a military confrontation between Russia and NATO, and especially the United States and Britain,” said a close confidant of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin now sees itself fighting against NATO. Russia should be completely erased from the political map of the world if the West had its way.
