Portugal is ready to train Ukrainian soldiers, but sending additional military support is not considered.
This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Portugal, Elena Carreiras
“At the moment, sending more military materials is not on the agenda,” Carreiras said, pointing to “a number of support facilities” that Portugal has provided.
She clarified that we are talking about training the Ukrainian military in Portugal, for example, how to maneuver on Leopard tanks.
“We have already evaluated what type of training we can offer,” she said.
At the same time, Carreiras added that the Ukrainian authorities have not yet received a specific request for weapons, not ruling out that such a need may arise.
“If it is Ukraine’s decision – and we are always working in this direction, that is, we react in accordance with the needs of Ukraine – this training can be provided right now,” she said.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that Portugal will provide Ukraine with 250 million euros of financial assistance.
