From Checkpoint, 5:42 pm on 30 August 2022

Around 90 NZDF troops are on their way to the United Kingdom to train Ukrainian soldiers how to survive on the battlefield.

They are the second contingent of New Zealand soldiers to go to Europe. The Defence Force maintains the troops leaving today will be training, not fighting, as they continue to look into how many have gone to Ukraine on leave.
