Ukraine in among ten countries for international peacekeepers' training
Ukraine is one of the ten countries in the world with a modern training center for the international police force, says Stephen Schwartz, UN expert on professional training of police services at Integrated Professional Training, Department of Peacekeeping Operations and Department of UN Field Missions of the UN Secretariat.
"Ukraine has also developed unique specialized training courses to train the observers from the UN civilian police. We positively evaluated the potential of Ukraine, and the Interior Ministry, too - in particular, about the training of peacekeepers for international missions," said Schwartz.
Representatives of Integrated Professional Training of the UN Secretariat also appreciated the level of training of Ukrainian peacekeepers. They handed over to representatives of the Ukrainian Special Peacekeeping Center the UN certificate that recognizes fitness of the study course (developed by the center) for the preparation of the UN international police, who carry out peacekeeping and security tasks.
