YAVORIV, Ukraine--This week, Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine welcomed the 1st Airborne Battalion, 79th Air Assault Brigade to the Combat Training Center near Yavoriv, Ukraine.The airborne battalion earned the moniker "cyborgs" from their relentless defense of the Donetsk Airport in 2014.
Over the next 55 days, the cyborgs will test their mettle completing a training program led by Ukrainian CTC trainers and U.S. mentors from the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.The 45th IBCT is also working alongside partners from Canada, the U.K., Poland, Lithuania, and Denmark whose missions complement that of JMTG-U.
"Our exchange of experiences and techniques will ultimately make all of our armies stronger," said Col. David Jordan, commander of the JMTG-U and the 45th IBCT, "That will ultimately make our nations stronger, and our world safer and more peaceful."
