A British Army a trainer for preparing the troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for a clash RussiaA Russian soldier on the front line of the war in Ukraine expressed his desire to go to the war-torn country with recruits. Calling the fresh recruits his “brother in arms”, one British army trainer told Sky News he would be “100 per cent” ready to do the job from Ukraine.

Sky News’ Deborah Haines, reporting from an undisclosed venue in north-west England, said: “British coaches say they make a difference.

“But some would clearly like to do it in Ukraine, not remotely.”

Lance Corporal Philip Lawrence told Sky News: “It’s 100 per cent unfortunately not up to me, but I would love to go there with them.

“We see them here as brothers in arms.”

During a visit to the range, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told Sky News: “Training matters.

“When you’re at war and against the Russians, you have to make sure you can be the best you can be, and that’s the process we’re doing here.

“We’re starting to deliver.”

It happened at a time when Ukrainian forces were fighting to block the advance of the Russian military in the eastern Donbass region on Saturday.

Ukraine will eventually have to conclude a peace agreement or “continue to slide down this mountain” to collapse, he said.

On the front line in the east, Ukrainian officials report heavy Russian shelling of towns and villages as Russian forces attack from multiple directions.

“The Russians are firing along the entire front line,” the governor of the Luhansk region, Siarhei Gaidai, said on the Telegram messaging system.

“The enemy is trying to advance from the population centers of the Luhansk region to the first settlements of the Donetsk region.”
