The Prime Minister has released images showing he met with Ukrainian troops being trained by the British Armed Forces earlier in the week. 

In a video shared on Boris Johnson’s Twitter account, the Prime Minister says he is "absolutely convinced" Ukrainian troops can and will win in the war against Russia. 

"The UK is committed to doing all we can to help Ukraine continue to repel Russian aggression," the social media post read. 

In the video, the PM is seen witnessing some live firing exercises, throw a grenade and try military equipment.

The Ukrainian troops are training in North Yorkshire and they are only some of the hundreds of Ukrainian troops who are taking part in a military training programme running across the UK. 

The programme is part of the UK's support for the country in its fight against Russia's unprovoked invasion which saw the Government commit to training 10,000 Ukrainian troops every 120 days. 

About 1,000 UK service personnel are deploying to run the programme, which is taking place at a number of Ministry of Defence sites across the country.
