The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the EU member states made a decision about the start of the training mission for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Such a statement made the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

“We are united in our support of Ukraine. The best proof of that is that today, we launched the EU Military Assistance Mission with the purpose of training at least 15,000 Ukrainian soldiers. It has been decided, it has been agreed, it has been implemented in record time. I hope that it will start working by the end of this month,” said Josep Borrell.
