The training will take place from 20 to 31 July at the Yavoriv training ground, Lviv region, as noted by Igor Dolhov Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine for European integration.
“The nearest military event to be held is a multinational training “Saber Guardian / Rapid Trident – 2015”. It will take place at the Yavoriv training ground.
The Ukrainian side will engage 800 troops; the same number of participants will come from other countries. The largest number of the partakers comes from the United States, but also combat forces representatives from the United Kingdom, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Georgia, and Lithuania will be send to Ukraine, "said Dolhov.
The Deputy Minister explained that these studies will step in order to strengthen teamwork and the cooperation between Ukrainian Armed Forces and units of other countries.
As was reported before, NATO will continue to enhance security in the Black Sea as a consequence of Russian aggression against Ukraine.
According to Dolhov, NATO increases the rapid reaction force. Instead of 13 thousand combat-ready forces 40 thousand will be brought. NATO decided to enhance the eastern flank, as well as the Black Sea security, because capability of NATO and Ukraine has been greatly undermined after occupation of Crimea".
