KABUL.

Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said on Saturday the Central Asian nation would triple the number of its personnel in the framework of the training mission.

At a meeting of the North Atlantic Council with countries contributing troops to Resolute Support, he said the Ukrainian forces had been accomplishing tasks in Afghanistan for 11 years.

“We will continue to participate in this operation. We are ready to … triple our personnel,” the minister was quoted as saying by Interfax.

He said the Ukrainians expressed condolences to families of fallen NATO military and civil personnel, as well as the Afghan people fighting killed by terrorists.
