While fighting between Ukraine and Russia persists, France will train up to 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers in the country for several weeks.

French Defense Minister Sebastien Lecornu told Le Parisien newspaper that the country will also supply Ukraine with Crotale air defense systems used to intercept low-flying aircraft and missiles.

Ukrinform— a Ukrainian state news agency, quoted Lecornu as saying that the training will focus on three levels which are: training for a specific need, training with provided equipment and general combat.

All these were revealed after the signing on Thursday by Ukraine of an agreement with France in the field of defense and security.

Meanwhile, Russia has continued to send more troops to Ukraine, even after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that Ukrainian forces had taken over parts of the country occupied by Russian forces.
