The Ukrainian brigade of 3,000 to 5,000 soldiers is trained in Sweden to use modern Western equipment and may be one of the most combat-ready units to take part in the upcoming counteroffensive.

The Times reported that the Ukrainian brigade, trained in Sweden, is equipped with Leopard 2 tanks, CV-90 combat vehicles and Archer artillery systems, making it one of the strongest units in the Ukrainian armed forces.

“This month (May – editor’s note) he returned to Ukraine to be ready for war,” says the British newspaper.

The Swedish public media “SVT” states that this is the first media report on the training of Ukrainian units in Sweden. Officially, the Swedish Defense Forces neither confirm nor deny such information.

At the same time, Swedish officers are known to have helped train Ukrainian soldiers in England as part of Operation Interflex.

For example, Swedish instructors gave lectures for soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the installation, arrangement and overcoming of engineering barriers.
