In early November, the Council of the European Union announced, in a statement, a mission to train 15,000 Ukrainian soldiers to contribute to strengthening Kyiv’s defense capabilities, with a budget of 107 million euros.
The exercises are being held within the framework of the two-year mission in many EU countries, including Poland and Germany.
