Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania are planning soon to set up a joint military brigade. The aim is to participate in crisis management activities. This was told in Brussels by the Chief of General Staff and Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Hryhoriy Pedchenko.
"At a meeting with the chief of general staff of Poland and the chief of general staff of Lithuania, we discussed efforts to establish a Ukrainian-Polish-Lithuanian brigade. We are currently drafting a package of legal acts, and late this spring we want to sign a technical agreement.
