The statement follows a pledge from EU officials in February this year that it would train 30,000 Ukrainian troops, building on an initial target of 15,000 personnel.

The announcement came as Brussels asked EU member states to back a 50-billion-euro ($55 billion) package to support Ukraine over the next four years.
