NATO trains Ukrainian servicemen to be dispatched to Donbass — diplomat

“The alliance continues political and practical support to Kiev,” Grushko said.

BRUSSELS, March 30. /TASS/. Instructors from several NATO countries continue training Ukrainian servicemen who will be dispatched to Donbass to join the armed operations there, Russian ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Friday in a comment on this year’s first session of the Russia-NATO council at the ambassadorial level.

“NATO isn’t putting any pressure on the Ukrainian side and isn’t commenting on the economic and transport blockade of Donbass organized by nationalists,” Grushko said. “The alliance continues political and practical support to Kiev.”

“Instructors from several NATO countries continue training servicemen at Yavoriv drill range near Lvov for redeployment to the zone of the so-called antiterrorist operation,” he said.
