US general says Ukraine could teach United States how to fight Russia

In a speech at the Lviv Security Forum, Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, who commands U.S. land forces in Europe, says that the U.S. Army can learn something from Ukrainian soldiers, reports Evropeyskaya Pravda.

“We have never done battle with Russian troops, and we have never had to deal with Russian electronic warfare. But Ukrainian soldiers have. That's why we can learn something from Ukrainian soldiers, and cooperation with Ukraine is beneficial for us,” said Hodges.

He also said that some of the military equipment that the United States provided to Ukraine worked very well in the course of fighting.

“Our military radar, which makes it possible to determine from where the Ukrainian positions are being fired on, turned out to be even better than we thought. We have received better data on their effectiveness,” the general said.

Hodges noted that the Russian military was able to destroy one of the radar units, but the rest still work.
