David Tabor met with Ukrainian and U.S. military leadership at the 142nd Training Center on April 28, 2021 to assess how ongoing training enhances interoperability between special operations forces and improves the ability of the Ukrainian military to respond to crisis.
    “U.S. forces in Europe remain committed to collective defense cooperative security alongside European allies and partners. Tabor said. “By seeking out new training opportunities, we ensure that U.S., allied and partner forces maintain the ability to meet and defeat any number of threats.”
    This visit remains a historic reminder of how the dedicated resolve of allies and partners with a common purpose and shared vision builds proven partnerships that endure. Seeking new training opportunities allowing allies and partners to build upon already strong bonds of trust and cooperation and demonstrate a continued commitment to building the capacity of Ukraine’s forces to defend more effectively against Russian aggression.
