Ukraine is to host U.S.-led military drills later this month involving hundreds of troops.
Poland’s Defense Ministry said on September 3 that the exercises, dubbed Rapid Trident 14, are to be held on September 13-26 in western Ukraine close to NATO-member Poland.
Troops from NATO members Britain, Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, Romania, and alliance partners Norway and Moldova will join U.S. and Polish troops for the annual event in Ukraine, which is not a NATO member.
Focused on peacekeeping, it will include command patrolling and dealing with improvised explosive devices.
The annual exercise was initially scheduled for July, but was put back when planning was disrupted by the fighting between government forces and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
The fighting in Ukraine will be a featured topic at the NATO summit in Wales starting on September 4.
