  • Minister of Defence Peter Hultqvist supports a proposal from the Baltic countries for an EU-led training mission in Ukraine, reports Swedish Radio News.

  • This could mean that some Swedish soldiers are sent to the country to train Ukrainian troops at the same time as a large build-up of Russian forces on the eastern border of Ukraine.
