The member states of the European Union have agreed to organize military training for 15.000 Ukrainians as soon as possible, the online edition of German "Spiegel" reported, citing its own, unnamed EU sources.

Under the plan, which will be negotiated in Brussels next week, Poland will receive EU funds to set up the headquarters, while some parts will take place in other EU countries.

The German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in August that Berlin would train Ukrainian soldiers, while Denmark announced it would support a British-led training project for 130 soldiers.
