It should be noted that in a few weeks, the Ukrainians learned to work together on military vehicles. In February, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the training center, who was visiting Britain at the time.
According to the Defense Ministry, the trained crews are expected to be used in the Ukrainian counter-offensive, which should start in the coming weeks.
Recall that the UK was the first Western country to announce the transfer of 14 Challenger 2 tanks to Kyiv. In early February, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced that the equipment would be delivered to Ukraine in March.
According to independent experts, including Western ones, such a number of tanks will not have a noticeable effect on the course of hostilities. Also, too heavy Challenger 2 is not suitable for driving on muddy fields, Ukrainian bridges and urban battles.
