As the Secretary of State announced to the House on 17 January, the UK has provided Ukraine with "light, anti-armour defensive weapons systems" as part of an enhanced security assistance package. Included in that support is short-term training to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, provided by a small number of UK personnel, within the framework of Operation ORBITAL: the UK's long-term defensive training mission in Ukraine, before returning to the UK. The UK has not and does not currently provide training or assistance to the National Guard Unit of Ukraine, this includes the Azov Battalion.
