Ukrainian citizens training for Russian invasion

Ukrainian reservists are being trained for a possible Russian invasion in the forests around the capital Kyiv. “Every person in this country needs to know what to do if the enemy invades the country,” said 19-year-old student Daniil Larin, one of about 50 civilians who received training recently.

In recent weeks, dozens of Ukrainians have volunteered as reservists if the Russians invade the country

. In total, there are now about 100,000 reservists.

The Ukrainian army has 215,000 soldiers who have been fighting the Russian-backed rebel army in the east of the country since 2014. The conflict has already killed 13,000 people.

Ukraine fears a Russian invasion as it builds up troops along the border between the two countries. The EU and the US also fear an attack. Moscow has dismissed reports of a possible invasion as an attempt to create unrest.

On Monday, it was announced that the US and Russia are planning a security meeting on January 10. Russian representatives would also meet with NATO and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in the days that followed.
