France is secretly training the Ukrainian armed forces under a special program. This is stated in the publication of the publication Politico.
According to the adviser to the head of the French Ministry of Defense, Paris did not conduct mass training of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, since the start of the special military operation, about 40 Ukrainian soldiers have already been trained in the use of Caesar self-propelled howitzers. The adviser noted that France could secretly conduct “specialized” exercises in Ukraine.
“The UK has decided to provide basic training. We provide more specialized training. We are not going to tell you about everything we do, ”the source said.
At the same time, the possibility of creating a training base within NATO is being discussed. However, members of the Alliance fear that this will confirm Russia’s claims that the organization is not only defensive.
