More than 90 service members from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard, and the police, as well as border guards and rescuers, took part in the event. For the first time, soldiers from the frontline and engineer troops were invited to complete the training.
Osprey Global Solutions Ukraine, an American-Ukrainian foundation, organized the course. The practical part of the training was held at the secretive bases of the National Academy of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
During the course, Ukrainian soldiers were thoroughly trained to use drones and robots to scout mine-contaminated areas and buildings. Urban combat and battlefield scenarios were also modeled.
This was Osprey's second training event. According to the American instructors, the techniques that the Ukrainian defenders learned will be useful in actual warfare.
"We will further continue our cooperation to provide effective training assistance to Ukraine's defense forces," stated David L. Grange, former US Army Major General and co-founder of Osprey.
