Defense ministers of European Union member states will discuss the establishment of training missions for Ukrainian soldiers at an informal meeting in Prague. The head of EU foreign affairs, Josep Borell, told journalists before the meeting. According to him, the situation in Ukraine has not improved since the Russian aggression began. The European Union has supported this country and will continue to do so.

“This idea of ​​a training mission is old. We talked about it before the war started,” Borrell said. He hopes his ministers will “give the green light” at today’s meeting, with the EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy adding that further supplies of military equipment to attacked countries will also be discussed. .

According to Bolero, the situation in Ukraine is very bad. The head of EU diplomacy recalled the bombing of civilians and the mistreatment of prisoners of war.

The Defense Minister arrived in Prague on Monday and received an informal welcome in the Prague Castle Ballroom. The main part of the meeting is scheduled for this morning and afternoon. The war in Ukraine and its implications for the security of her EU member states will be a key theme that permeates the entire conference. In addition, Ministers will discuss the shortcomings of EU defense investments. Ukrainian Minister Oleksiy Reznikov will join the meeting via video call.
