The United States intends to continue training Ukrainian security forces this autumn, confirmed US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner at a press briefing in Washington DC, Friday. The training will occur in western Ukraine near the Polish border and will be conducted by US Army Europe taking place at the invitation of the Ukrainian government, added Toner. He said that the training would be similar to the ongoing project with the National Guard which was announced last March. Toner went on to say that the additional programme brings the total amount that the US has committed to Ukraine in security assistance sine 2014 to over $244 million (€ 222 million).
