The EU regrets that they did not start training soldiers of the Armed Forces a year ago

The European Union regrets the lost opportunity to organize the training of the Armed Forces of Ukraine a year ago, when several member states of the Union made such a proposal.

This was stated by the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, during a debate with European legislators, writes AP.

«Unfortunately, we did not do this and today we regret it. We regret that we did not fulfill this request last August“, Borrell said, adding that if the European Union approved this proposal, “we would be in a better situation.”

The EU will provide Ukraine with even greater military support – BorrellThe EU and partner countries will continue to provide Ukraine with the necessary military support in even greater volumes.

At the same time, he noted that the EU is running out of arms and ammunition stocks, as a significant amount of them are provided to Ukraine to defend against Russian aggression, and called on the Community countries to coordinate arms spending.

«The military reserves of most of the member states were, I would not say exhausted, but to a large extent depleted, because we provide the Ukrainians with a large number of capacities. We need to replenish them. The best way to recharge is to do it together. It will be cheaper that way“, the high representative of the EU believes.

Earlier, Borrell reported that the ministers of foreign affairs of the EU countries agreed to suspend the simplified procedure for issuing visas to citizens of the Russian Federation against the background of the invasion of Ukraine.

Earlier, Scholz visited the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine undergoing training in Germany and promised weapons.

It also became known that the Netherlands will help train the Ukrainian military in Britain.
