“Our military servicemen will take part in the NATO exercises to be held in Georgia as part of the Partnership for Peace programme,” the minister said on Wednesday, adding that this was provided for in the Ukrainian armed forces’ action plan for 2009.

The Ukrainian military will carry out the missions that were preliminarily discussed and planned. “There have been changes in the plans,” he said.

Five Ukrainian staff officers will take part in the upcoming NATO exercises in Georgia.

“Five of our staff officers will go to Georgia around May 11 to attend these exercises. These officers will go to Georgia unarmed. Therefore they will need no permission of the parliament,” the Defence Ministry said.
