– The Ukrainian forces need further training and education. Norway is positive about the British initiative to train Ukrainian soldiers in Great Britain. We will participate with instructors for this basic soldier training, like several other countries, says the Minister of Defence.
Norway has also taken a positive stance on an initiative from Iceland to set up a training project for demining in Ukraine.
– The Norwegian Armed Forces have good expertise in this area and can initially contribute to the work to develop this concept, says Gram.
The Minister of Defense is participating in an international donor conference in Copenhagen, where defense ministers from several countries have gathered to continue cooperation in the “Ukraine Defense Group”, which was established earlier this year.
The Ukraine Defense Contact Group is a group of countries contributing to Ukraine’s defense following the Russian invasion of the country on 24 February.
