EU considering ‘big Ukraine mission’ – top diplomat — Analysis

The EU is considering establishing a major program to train Ukrainian troops in neighboring nations, the bloc’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, has said. Talks between EU defense ministers and the Ukrainian government will take place in Prague, August 29, to discuss this matter.  

“I hope it will be approved,”Borrell made the remarks on Monday, while speaking at Santander (Spain) forum. “Of course, it would be a big mission,”He said that the training program was a great idea. “has to be up to the level of the conflict.” 

It seems plausible that an army that looks durable and will last must be sustained requires a lot of effort, not just in material supplies but also the training and support of the troops. He stated.

Britain and the USA are currently training Ukrainian soldiers to use Western-supplied weaponry and also teach them tactics. The news agency Euractiv quoted EU sources as saying that Ukraine’s foreign and defense ministers wrote a letter to Borrell last summer asking for a training program, and the bloc has since “drawn up several options.” 

Moscow claims that Western assistance to Ukraine’s military will result in more casualties than expected, but it won’t change the outcome of the conflict.

“We should call a spade a spade: the EU will set up bases to train terrorists and Nazi militants for the Kiev regime,”Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry wrote on Monday via social media.  




“A hundred years ago, the Europeans also didn’t immediately realize what fascism is like. They realized later, but it was too late,”Elle added. 

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. These protocols, which were brokered by France and Germany, were first signed on February 24, 2014. Former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.” 

The Kremlin recognised the Donbass republics in February 2022 as independent states. It demanded Ukraine declare itself neutral and not join any Western military bloc. Kiev claims that the Russian offensive wasn’t provoked.
