The Norwegian government decided to allocate €14.5 million to the EU Military Assistance Mission in support of Ukraine (EUMAM Ukraine), European Council reports.
This is the first time ever that a third country makes a financial contribution to the European Peace Facility.

EUMAM Ukraine provides individual, collective, and specialized training to up to 15 000 Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel over multiple locations in the territory of EU member states.
