Copenhagen - Denmark will train Ukrainian soldiers on its territory. This was announced by the Danish Defense Minister on Tuesday (13/9) local time, as the country stepped up its support for Ukrainian troops in the fight against the Russian invasion.

The program appears to be similar to that in Britain, where the government in London has begun training up to 10,000 inexperienced Ukrainian military recruits since last July.

"There will be training in Denmark. I cannot give further details but Ukrainian soldiers will train in Denmark," Defense Minister Morten Bodskov told Danish news agency Ritzau during a visit to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

Like other Western countries, Denmark pledged in August to send instructors to Britain to support the British initiative, with 130 officers.

However, the preparation of training Ukrainian soldiers on the territory of Denmark is an increase in the support of EU and NATO member states for Ukraine.

Last month, a conference of Ukrainian donors in Copenhagen, Denmark, attended by 26 countries, pledged an additional 1.5 billion euros (US$1.5 billion) in aid for training and equipment for Ukrainian troops.

In recent days, Ukraine has reclaimed several territories, including dozens of territories in the northeast, in a swift counter-offensive against Russian forces.

As Ukrainian troops continue to advance, the Estonian prime minister and the Lithuanian president on Tuesday (13/9) local time asked Europe to increase military assistance to Ukraine.

"Ukraine shows how strength of spirit and leadership can be as important as pure military power," Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas wrote on Twitter after holding three-way talks with French President Emmanuel Macron and Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.

"Our focus now should be on increased and rapid military assistance - this is bringing Ukraine closer to victory."

"Stressed that Ukraine needs weapons to advance in its fight against Russian aggression. Western support must be increased," Nauseda tweeted.
