IMPROVE  No evidence given. Repeating a pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukrainian soldiers as nationalist force ready to "clean" Donbas.

Joint Multinational Training Group-Ukraine is the name for the training mission being conducted by U.S. Forces in support of Ukraine. The U.S. will continue training and advising Ukrainian security forces until 2020, and JMTG-U will oversee defensive and security training for up to five battalions of Ministry of Defense forces per year.
