Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said “more than half” of the 90 Howitzers, long range weapons, the US is sending to Ukraine are now country, during a briefing at the Pentagon on Wednesday.
“Today, without giving whole numbers, more than half of those Howitzers are in Ukraine,” Kirby said.
50 Ukrainians have been trained on the Howitzers. The Ukrainians are going to go back to Ukraine and “train their teammates,” Kirby said. Those 50 Ukrainians who have already been trained on the Howitzers were part of the “first tranche” of training, Kirby added.
Kirby did not know if the second tranche of training, the next group of 50 Ukrainians to be trained, has started yet, he said.
