NATO member countries are ready to increase their presence in Ukraine by providing a number of counselors and instructors to train the Ukrainian military. The press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces reported this January 21.

Viktor Muzhenko, the General Staff Chief, held 12 bilateral meeting with his counterparts from the USA, Great Britain, Canada and some European countries, as well as heads of military committees of NATO and the EU.

“All countries voiced out their support to Ukraine and their readiness to build up their presence there by sending their experts to improve skills and combat efficiency of our servicemen. I guess that will happened in the near future”, Muzhenko said.

According to him, some countries agreed to help Ukraine by providing military equipment and non-lethal weaponry – means of communications, medical supplies et cetera.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg announced the increase of NATO military presence in Poland after the Warsaw summit, which is slated for July 2016.
