The war between Ukraine and Russia has made its way to the United States.
U.S. military officials have announced that Ukrainian troops have officially landed on U.S. soil and will begin military training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
Soldiers landed at Fort Sill Regional Airport on Tuesday afternoon.
Training for Ukrainian forces includes learning to operate the Patriot missile system and undergoing various combat-type simulations.
Watch the moment their flight arrives:

As Gateway Pundit previously reported, the move to train Ukrainian forces comes after the Pentagon announced it was in the process of sending the Patriot air defense system and more weapons to Ukraine.
The training will last several months but many Oklahoma residents are concerned for their own safety.

Republican Rep. Nathan Daum previously tried to block Ukrainian troops from training in Oklahoma by issuing SCR2, but that has now had no effect.
In a tweet, Rep. Dahm warned, “The last thing we need is for them to mistakenly fire a missile into Oklahoma.”
I just filed an SCR2 to reject foreign troops on Oklahoma soil. The Pentagon is planning to send Ukrainian troops to Oklahoma to train on US missile systems. The last thing we need is for them to mistakenly fire a missile into Oklahoma… pic.twitter.com/iuzSHOqznV
