Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak announced his readiness to invite the Ukrainian military for training, Polskie Radio reported on July 12.

During his visit to Kyiv, the minister stressed that "peace in Ukraine is also in the interest of Poland." 

“We also talked about the possibility of training the Ukrainian military in Poland,” said the minister. “We can train sappers, because we all know very well Russians have left mines on the occupied Ukrainian territory and they need to be removed.”
