Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland sign agreement on joint military brigade

Ukrainian Defence Minister Valeriy Heletey has signed an agreement with the Lithuanian and Polish counterparts on the creation of a joint military unit, the UNIAN news agency reported at 19:46 Kyiv time on 19 September.

The agreement was signed in Warsaw earlier on the same day. The joint brigade will be called LITPOLUKRBRIG. Ukraine will be represented by servicemen of the 80th separate air-mobile brigade. The Ukrainian, Lithuanian and Polish servicemen will take part in joint exercises and eventually in military operations, the report said.
The relevant technical documents will be drafted in the next two years, by which time the brigade should have become fully operational.
