The Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Polish President Andrzej Duda met in Kyiv and among other issues discussed the conditions for further cooperation and Ukraine's participation in the military exercises on the territory of Poland.

- I am sure this project (Lithuanian-Polish-Ukrainian brigade) will implement all our expectations at the time of Ukraine's participation in military exercises. Today, we have discussed the possible participation of Ukraine in the military exercise "Shield" in Poland. We gratefully accept this proposal, and I think this new form of cooperation between the armed forces would make the situation in this difficult security environment more reliable, the President told at a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
