Belgium will send 100 military instructors to Ukraine to train the Ukrainian army, the Belgian Minister of Defense Ludivine Dedonder in a conversation with the newspaper Soir.
According to her, 18 courses will be organized to train Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU) fighters in sniping, reconnaissance, demining and other skills, which Belgian instructors have perfected during NATO participation in battles in Afghanistan. In total, the EU plans to train about 15,000 Ukrainian military personnel. The courses are scheduled to begin in December.
Dedonder also said that by the end of May, Belgium will hand over to Kyiv ten underwater drones that can identify underwater mines and espionage assets. Ukraine will also receive two mobile laboratories to monitor the chemical, radiation and bacteriological situation.
