"I am sure that I can learn much from the members of the Ukrainian team as their dedication and strength of mind impress. I am proud that NATO supports the ATO veterans through its agency, and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, during his visit to Kyiv, gave the team members certificates for travel to Toronto. This is one of the examples of practical assistance that NATO provides to Ukraine," Director at the NATO Information and Documentation Centre in Kyiv Barbora Maronkova told reporters before the start of the training session, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
