In 2023, specialized mobile teams of Czech engineers, chemists, medics, and snipers trained nearly a thousand Ukrainian soldiers in Poland. The EU-led mission will continue this year as well. According to the commander of the first rotation, Captain Pavel Kinc,  the joint preparation is also beneficial for the Czech soldiers. He remarked, "Drawing from our firsthand experiences on the battlefield, we can refine our operational procedures, devise enduring solutions, focus on preventing future conflicts, and enhance collaboration with our fellow partners."
