Tánaiste and Minister for Defence, Micheál Martin, said 'EUMAM Ukraine will provide vital training support to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as the coordination of EU member states’ activities delivering the training.'
The primary role of the Irish troops will be to provide training to Ukrainian personnel in one or more EU countries. These trainers will be supplemented by staff based in the Military Planning and Conduct Capability (MPCC) in Brussels and in multi-national Special Training Command in Strausberg, Germany.
