US Army 101st Airborne soldiers deploy to Ukraine.

Amman, May 2 (Petra)-- Personnel of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division arrived in Ukraine, as part of the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine (JMTG-U) mission. They deployed to the International Center For Peacekeeping and Security in Lviv Oblast, western Ukraine. Over 130 soldiers from the division's 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team "Strike" have replaced the Tennessee Army National Guard 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment, which had been providing training to Ukraine's troops at the center, commonly known as the Yavoriv training range, since August 2018. The new rotation at Yavoriv will last 9 months. The United States is by far the largest provider of defense assistance to Ukraine, followed by Canada and Great Britain. //Petra// 02/05/2019 21:05:53
