The first Ukrainian school of sergeants, who will gain education experience under the NATO armies standards, has been opened in Kiev.
50 servicemen will be taught on the basis of the Azov regiment training camp, and will be the first who will get enhanced physical and psychological training.
It is reported that the education process will consist of a theoretical and practical parts, will last three months and will be complete after the exams are passed.
Then, one group of the military men will be sent to fight in Donbass, while the other will stay as instructors in Kiev.
As Pravda.Ru reported, education of the Ukrainian military was started by the American instructors in 2015. By now the Ukrainian government should pay $19m for the Ukrainian Armed Forces' soldiers studying how to put a gun on safety, open closed doors, use portable radios for cipher talks and at least not to die because of non-lethal injuries.
The first training, which was seen by the New York Times correspondent, is usually carried out by untaught military cadets themselves.
