The British Army has scaled back training for the Ukrainian military by 30% in light of numerous complaints from local residents regarding noise disturbances near the training grounds.

The Times reported on this.

Lydd Town Council in Kent alerted the Ministry of Defense to noise complaints from residents near a training ground. Base commander, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Powell, has agreed to a 30% reduction in training and noise mitigation measures.

In a letter, Powell acknowledged the increased noise due to Ukrainian Armed Forces training and pledged to maintain a positive relationship with Lydd. His team reviewed training processes, reducing noise through fewer smoke effects and quieter sound effects.

Local residents endure continuous explosions and gunfire from early morning until nearly 10 p.m.

Ukrainian marines in the UK receive training in amphibious operations, encompassing field survival, first aid, close combat, physical fitness, planning skills, and pastoral care from trained military chaplains.
