Ukrainian military will be trained in Slovakia
A training programme for Ukrainian fighters is also being composed with the support of the European Union.
Slovakia has agreed to train military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at its training grounds.
The Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, wrote about this on Facebook, informing about the results of the meeting of the Contact Group on Defense Issues of Ukraine (the so-called “Rammstein-5”) on September 8.
As the Minister of Defense emphasized, thanks to the leadership of Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Defense of Poland Mariusz Blaszczak, an opportunity has been created for the training of Ukrainian soldiers at training grounds in Poland.
“At Ramstein-5, I asked to consider the possibility of deploying similar training programs in other neighboring countries. This idea was immediately supported by a great friend of Ukraine, Minister of Defense of Slovakia Jaroslav Naď. This will ensure the scaling of the training process; we will receive more trained troops in a short time,” – wrote Reznikov.
Also, according to him, a training programme is being designed in parallel with the support of the European Union.
“We have already made specific proposals, including the construction of training centers in Ukraine to combine European resources and technologies with the practical experience of our army. Then these centers will work in the interests of all of Europe,” Reznikov added.
