Feodosia Marines have started the operational training within the HELBROC battle group of the European Union and the NATO’s Response Force (NRF).

It is scheduled that during six months the Ukrainian assault company will complete tasks at the permanent base in Ukraine being ready to deploy urgently in crisis regions within the Battle group. In addition, the Ukrainian black berets will complete such a mission for the second time.

The marine company will accomplish tasks within the NRF during a year ensuring security in the region.
