Ukrainian troops complete CV90 infantry fighting vehicles in Sweden

Ukrainian soldiers have undergone training on CV90 infantry fighting vehicles in Sweden and will now return home. 

The troops have been training during the whole spring of 2023, the state's defense ministry reports.

In February, Sweden approved the transfer of 50 CV90 infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine.

Ukrainian soldiers underwent training in undisclosed locations in Sweden.

On 18 May, the media reported that a Ukrainian brigade of 3,000 to 5,000 soldiers was trained in Sweden and equipped with modern Western technology, including Leopard 2 tanks, CV-90 combat vehicles, and Archer artillery systems. This training is said to make the brigade one of the most capable units that will participate in future counteroffensive actions.
