Hundreds of Ukrainian troops have completed military training in Britain, including on the Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) the British government is supplying to help counter Russian artillery tactics.
Ukrainian troops were filmed earlier this week loading and firing 105mm light guns during exercises in Salisbury, England, one part of a British-led program that has been undertaken by more than 450 Ukrainian armed forces with support from New Zealand.
MLRS systems were also shown in use.
The training is part of a wide-ranging international support package following Russia's invasion earlier this year, as the West seeks to help Ukraine repel Russian forces by providing increasingly advanced weapons systems and the skills to use them.
Russia says it is conducting a "special military operation" in Ukraine.
