France plans to launch a five-week training course for Ukrainian military personnel by the end of this year, which will be held in Poland. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the publication of the French newspaper Le Monde.
Previously, Paris limited itself to instructing Ukrainian gunners on the use of Caesar self-propelled artillery mounts (ACS) of 155 mm caliber. These self-propelled guns were provided to the armed forces of Ukraine by the French side from their own stocks.
According to the French edition, “the Ministry of Defense decided to support the mission to train Ukrainian soldiers, agreed upon this summer by the European Union, and developed the basic principles of its participation in it.” They said that military bases would be located on Polish territories, where specialized military camps would be located. “The General Staff expressed a desire to speed up this process and start work before the end of 2022,” the newspaper said.

Meanwhile, the Bloomberg news agency reported, citing its own sources, that Western countries do not plan to increase the supply of heavy weapons to Ukraine due to the partial mobilization campaign launched in Russia.
Earlier it became known that Riga handed over to Kyiv a batch of fifty American M113 armored vehicles, which have already entered the Ukrainian army.
