Nearly 1,000 Ukrainian marines are heading back to Ukraine after being trained by NATO Allies: the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom. They have spent six months focusing on amphibious skills and tactics, conducting beach raids by day and night at various locations across the UK. 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.
