NATO Allies: the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom train Ukraine’s Marines.

Nearly 1,000 Marines have spent six months focusing on amphibious skills and tactics, conducting beach raids by day and night at various locations across the UK.

The Ukrainian Marines completed the course, which included instruction in the use of mortars, Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapons (NLAW) and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, drones for reconnaissance, and explosive demolition of obstacles such as Dragon’s Teeth anti-vehicle fortifications.

The course was the first such programme run by the UK Royal Marines Commandos following requests from Ukraine. The programme is part of Allies’ commitment to helping Ukraine uphold its right to self-defence against Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression, as enshrined in the UN Charter.
