The exercises were attended by Vladimir Gavrilov, Ukraine’s deputy defense minister, and UK Armed Forces Minister James Heappey. The exact location of the drill is undisclosed for security reasons, RT reported.
The ministers observed the sailors practicing key skills at sea, learning weapon drills, damage control and how to operate machinery on vessels.
According to the Navy, 80 Ukrainian servicemen are receiving “comprehensive, expert instruction”. At the same time, the UK intends to sell Kiev two soon-to-be-retired Sandown-class minehunters.
