Spain to open training center for Ukrainian troops this month

A training center for Ukrainian troops will start operating in Spain at the end of November.

Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez made a corresponding announcement at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Madrid on Monday, Reuters reports.

The center will open in Toledo, Sanchez added.

He also noted that Spanish police would deploy in Ukraine over the coming weeks to help investigate alleged war crimes committed by the Russian army.

As noted, Spanish officers are set to work alongside Ukrainian investigators and prosecutors in the collection of evidence that could be incorporated into cases probing alleged violations of international law following Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February.

The Spanish Interior Ministry said that an advance delegation of Spanish police officials had already arrived in Kyiv to meet with representatives of the Ukrainian public prosecutor's office.

In their initial meeting, the two countries established the terms of cooperation and specified the areas of deployment, the ministry said.

As reported, Spain’s Defense Minister Margarita Robles stated that her country had the opportunity to train 2,400 Ukrainian service members a year within the framework of the EU mission.
