Some 1000 Ukrainian Marines Undergo Amphibious Training in the U.K.

Almost 1,000 Ukrainian marines are returning home from the UK after intensive amphibious training during a 6-month programme supported by international partners, including British and Dutch marines.

The Ukrainian marines will now use this knowledge and experience in their fight against Russian occupation, a Netherlands MoD release said.

Ukrainian marine forces have used unmanned boats, drones and missiles in successful attack on Russian ships and other naval assets in the Black sea. The damage to the Black Sea Fleet’s flagship, Moskva which later sank last year was the most serious attack.

The amphibious training was an addition to Operation Interflex, in which Ukrainian personnel receive 5 weeks of military basic training by international partners. Since its start in July last year, the Netherlands has been contributing to Operation Interflex with around 90 instructors of the Royal Netherlands Army and the Marine Corps.
