As explained by the commander of the National armed forces of Latvia Raymond Graube, "we should be solidary and share the experience that we have gained by joining NATO and participating in international operations". He was also pleased that Latvian soldiers in the context of the experiences with the Ukrainians will receive valuable knowledge gained during the fighting in Eastern Ukraine.

Under the guidance of instructors from Latvia, Lithuania, the USA, Canada and UK NATO plans to end 2016 to train 5 infantry battalions and a battalion of special forces of Ukraine.
