Iceland supports the training of Ukrainian naval cadets

Iceland has undertaken training of Ukrainian naval cadets who will receive training in practical seamanship including navigation, maritime surveillance, and operations, including search and rescue.The training is a part of the NATO training programme for Ukraine, and the Icelandic Coast Guard is responsible for the training in collaboration with the Defence Directorate of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The training will for the most part take place aboard Coast Guard vessels where smaller groups of cadets will receive several weeks of training. 

“This training programme is a good example of what Iceland can contribute to support Ukraine based on our expertise and experience in seafaring in challenging conditions of the North Atlantic,” says Foreign Minister Bjarni Benediktsson.
