Putin suffers hammer blow as UK and Canada team up in major boost to Ukraine’s military


The first group will be largely drawn from 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada’s Defence Ministry said.

The first courses will focus on individual skills required for frontline combat, including weapons handling, battlefield first aid, fieldcraft, patrol tactics and the Law of Armed Conflict, the ministry added.

Aspects of Operation UNIFIER were temporarily paused following the launch of the full-scale war on Ukraine in late February, but Ottawa committed to resuming training when and where conditions permitted.

Ms Anand said: “When we paused training in Ukraine this past winter, we said clearly that we would resume the training whenever and wherever the opportunity arose.
