One of the countries to host the EU training mission for the Armed Forces will be Poland
Poland will be one of the countries on whose territory the Ukrainian military will be trained as part of the newly created training mission of the European Union.
This is reported by European Pravda with reference to the words of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell.
It is expected that the training mission will be able to launch training the Ukrainian military from mid-November.
“Undoubtedly, the mission will not be located directly in Ukraine, but in countries neighboring Ukraine. Poland, of course, is one of them,” the diplomat said.
Borrell explained that the European Union will find a way to continue financing military aid for Ukraine. His answer to the journalist’s question about the information that there were problems with financing through the European Peace Support Fund was comprehensive and short.
“The money is enough, don’t worry about the money,” answered Josep Borrell.
Today, October 17, the ministers of foreign affairs of the European Union members could approve the decision to create a training military mission for Ukraine.
They also plan to allocate an additional €500 million for arming the Ukrainian army. A high-ranking EU official told journalists about this on Friday.
The European Union plans to train up to 15,000 Ukrainian soldiers under the new training mission. 12,000 of them will receive general training, and about 2,800 will undergo special course. It is expected that the mission will be able to start work from mid-November.
Instead of a single training center in the countries of the European Union, separate training courses by specialty should be organized.
It is assumed that the “headquarters” of the training mission will be created in Poland and will receive EU funds for this.
On October 6, Members of European Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the world to increase military assistance to Ukraine against the backdrop of Russian aggression.
