NATO has decided to open a joint training center in Bydgoszcz, Poland, where Ukrainian military personnel will train alongside alliance servicemembers, according to a statement from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

"Today, we decided to create a new NATO-Ukraine joint analysis, training, and education center in Bydgoszcz, Poland," Stoltenberg says.

According to him, Ukrainian military personnel will be able to share lessons learned from events in Ukraine at this center. In addition, Ukrainians will also be able to train and study together with NATO colleagues.

In the first half of 2024, NATO is conducting a series of exercises under the general code name Steadfast Defender-24. Poland will be one of the host countries and will host a significant number of soldiers and equipment from allies.

As part of Steadfast Defender-24, Polish national exercises involving armed forces from other countries will take place under the name Dragon-24.

As emphasized by the Polish General Staff, such exercises are defensive and not directed against any country.
