The plan provides for further invitation of Ukrainian officers to attend English language and staff officer courses at the Military Academy of Lithuania, and Ukrainian NGOs – at the international military instructor course at the Lithuanian Armed Forces School, consultations for Ukrainian colleagues on the development of a cyber defense system and to share experience in the area of military medicine.

Lithuania also plans to continue rendering assistance to Ukraine this year by further inviting Ukrainian troops injured in eastern Ukraine to undergo rehabilitation in Lithuania.

Exercise Maple Arch of Lithuania, Poland, Canada and Ukraine for training staff personnel of the trilateral Lithuanian-Polish-Ukrainian Brigade is planned to take place in Lithuania this November for developing military cooperation of NATO allies and Ukraine.

Just like last year, Lithuanian troops will participate in the US Army in Europe-organized Exercise Rapid Trident in Ukraine.
