Ukrainian language documentary about “Fearless Guarding” — the US training effort near Lviv

FYI: There has been US-Ukraine training called rapid Trident since 2009. I’m not sure whether or not it was inspired by the Russian invasion of Georgia. From what I hear, the training in previous years consisted of Ukrainians playing the role of a disorganized enemy for the benefit of US training. In other words, it only provided contact between militaries.

This year, the annual exercise was made bigger, though it’s still modest. 280 Ukrainians have been trained, and there a plans to train another two such groups.
