About 200 U.S troops have been pictured in Kiev, Ukraine, after they were sent to train the country’s military against an expected Russian invasion.
The troops from the Florida National Guard are training Ukrainian forces to use ‘bunker buster’ rocket launchers amid fears Russia’s President Putin is about to invade after amassing 130,000 soldiers at the border.
US soldiers were seen on a firing range in Lviv, near Ukraine’s border with Poland, on Sunday, January training forces to use M141 Bunker Defeat Munitions – around 100 of which have been sent by Washington as part of military aid shipments aimed at deterring a Russian attack.
‘Bunker buster’ rockets are designed to blow apart concrete, brick and sandbag positions, and have been used by the US since 1999.
Ukraine has also been training its civilians on military warfare incase of an invasion.
