Marine Corps could expand training mission in Ukraine

Marine leaders are considering expanding the Corps’ mission in Ukraine by training local troops who could be tasked with taking on Russian-backed separatists.

Marines could deploy to the Eastern European country to train the Ukrainian naval infantry, said Capt. Richard Ulsh, a spokesman for Marine Corps Forces Europe and Africa.
