The Ukrainian army's 1st Battalion, 28th Mechanized Infantry Brigade conducted a battalionwide, combined-arms, defensive training operation from March 27-29 at the Yavoriv Combat Training Center on the International Peacekeeping and Security Center, near Yavoriv, Ukraine.

The exercise served as the culminating event for the battalion's 55-day training rotation with the Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine. During the defensive training, the soldiers put all the skills they learned at the CTC to use; from individual weapons engagement and combat first aid, to direct and indirect fires, and coordinated company movements.
