Defence Secretary Ben Wallace in Dorset to meet Ukrainian troops

DEFENCE Secretary Ben Wallace was in Dorset this week.

On Wednesday (February 22), Mr Wallace was at Bovington Camp to meet UK and Ukrainian troops.

Currently, around 80 soldiers from the war-torn country are being trained in using Challenger 2 tanks, which the UK is supplying to aid the fight against Russian invasion.

Mr Wallace addressed troops, assuring them the British were with them ‘to the end’.

The visit came just weeks after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak visited Lulworth Camp, also in Dorset, to meet more troops being trained by the British Army.
