In Poland, Ukrainian paratroopers shared ATO experience with participants of Maple Arch 2017. They gave presentations on aspects of tasks accomplishment within the brigade.
LTC Andrii Orynchych briefed Polish, Lithuanian, and Canadian colleagues on planning of combat operations based on experience of the 80th separate assault airborne brigade. Ukrainian officers spoke about reconnaissance and intelligence, deployment of artillery units, as well as focused on propaganda issues and civil-military cooperation.
Exercise co-director Col. Dmytro Bratishko told about defence and security of critical facilities and shared experience gained in east of Ukraine in 2014 during combat operations near Luhansk airport.
“Experience of anti-terror operation is not a theory; we have shared the real lessons of combat operations. Our officers have covered a large scope from planning to practical war-fighting. Every presentation is a personal experience”, Col. Bratishko remarked.
