Ukrainian armed forces chief of staff to visit NATO HQ on Jan 21-22
Chief of staff and Commander of the Ukrainian armed forces Viktor Muzhenko will take part in a meeting of the NATO Military Committee while visiting the NATO headquarters in Brussels on January 21-22.
"It is planned that a delegation of the Ukrainian armed forces led by Chief of Staff and Commander of the Ukrainian armed forces Viktor Muzhenko will take part in events at the level of chiefs of staff of the alliance member-states and partners at the NATO headquarters on January 21-22," Ukrainian General Staff spokesman Vladyslav Selezniov said on Facebook on Tuesday.
The Ukrainian armed forces' delegation will take part in NATO Military Committee meetings as a partner in the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission, he said.
"During the NATO Military Committee meeting in the Ukraine format, its participants will discuss the current military-political situation in Ukraine and around its borders, plans to reform the Ukrainian armed forces, and principal trends and prospects of military cooperation between the Ukrainian armed forces and NATO," Selezniov said.
Apart from this, the Ukrainian delegation is expected to attend a number of working meetings to address practical aspects of military cooperation, in particular, with the heads of the NATO and EU military committees, members of the Allied Command Operations, the commander of the NATO Special Operations Forces (SOF), and the defense ministers of the alliance's member-states and partners, he said.
Selezniov had said earlier that Muzhenko had canceled his visit to the NATO headquarters in Brussels, as he was "leading an operation in the antiterrorist operation area."
It was planned originally that Muzhenko would be visiting the NATO headquarters in Brussels on January 20-22
