Servicemen of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team of the U.S. Army (R) and Ukrainian National Guard (L) attend an opening ceremony of joint military exercise ''Fearless Guardian 2015'' at the International Peacekeeping Security Center near the village of Starychy western.
     
After clearing customs, the U.S.-donated equipment will be delivered to Ukrainian Army units participating in U.S.-led training taking place at Yavoriv and Khmelnitsky. U.S. trainers from the Joint Multinational Training Group (JMTG-U) will train Ukrainian soldiers on the equipment for use on the frontlines.

This $23 million in assistance is part of the United States’ $75 million dollar European Reassurance Initiative (ERI). Since the Ukraine conflict began, the United States has committed more than $260 million in security assistance to Ukraine, including the provision of body armor, vehicles, night and thermal vision devices, medical equipment, heavy engineering equipment, radios, patrol boats, rations, tents, and counter-mortar radars.
