The EU Organizes a Large-Scale Mission for Ukraine

The Europe Union is considering launching a training program for the Ukrainian military

The Telegraph published an article in which the European Union high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Josep Borrel, announced a new project for the Ukrainian military. The EU is considering launching a large-scale operation to train Ukraine's armed forces. The main discussion of the plan will take place on August 29 at the EU meeting in Prague.

"It seems reasonable that the war, which continues and will continue, will require our efforts not only in terms of material supplies," Borrel stressed at a press conference in Santander, Spain.

Where the exercises will be held and how long it is unknown. However, Borrell says that the military training will be conducted under the auspices of the European Union and cover the possible areas of training.

With the full support of Ukraine, Borrel opposes a complete ban on the issuance of visas to Russians. In his view, some Russians wanted to leave the aggressor country and should be given a chance to leave the country.

Earlier, the United Kingdom began a military training program for fighters from Ukraine. Denmark, Canada, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, and Sweden joined the initiative.
