Ukraine and Türkiye have agreed to cooperate in the field of rehabilitation of the Ukrainian military personnel, according to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

It is noted that the agreements were reached at a meeting between Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Nataliia Kalmykova and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Türkiye to Ukraine Mustafa Levent Bilgen.

"We are very grateful for the assistance provided to Ukraine by the Republic of Türkiye. Now the list of such assistance has been expanded to include cooperation in the rehabilitation sector. A pilot project for the rehabilitation of military personnel has recently been launched,” she said.

According to Kalmykova, the goal of this project is to create an effective rehabilitation space with the participation of civilian and military healthcare facilities, social services and local governments. The Ministry of Defense reminded that the pilot project includes, in particular, the creation of centers of excellence - institutions that will take a leading role in the field of rehabilitation.

Türkiye's support for Ukraine

Türkiye has officially condemned Russian aggression, but has taken a neutral position and periodically tries to offer its platform for peace talks.

At the same time, Ankara has transferred and sold military equipment to Kyiv several times. Earlier, Middle East Eye wrote that Turkish arms manufacturer Canik supplied hundreds of large-caliber machine guns to Ukraine.
