Learning English becomes an integral part of a new military culture introduced in the Ukrainian armed forces, based on Euro-Atlantic values and principles.
In the new system of professional military education, English tests will become compulsory, the Defense Ministry press service reported.
“The need for staff to learn English is one of the main aspects of interoperability with NATO structures,” the Defense Ministry said.
The Defense Ministry noted that servicemen fluent in English will be able to participate in international missions and training sessions abroad.

Ukraine and NATO: Background
- The Alliance recognized Ukraine as a partner of enhanced opportunities. This status is part of the Partnership Interoperability Initiative, which aims to maintain and deepen interaction between the Alliance and Partner States that have made significant contributions to NATO-sponsored operations and missions.
- From now on, Ukraine will benefit from tailored individual capacities to support its contributions. In particular, this provides for expanded access to troop interoperability programs and exercises.
- Thus, Ukraine has become one of NATO’s six partners for enhanced opportunities with Australia, Finland, Georgia, Jordan and Sweden. Each Partner maintains an individual relationship with the Alliance, based on areas of common interest.
- Ukraine’s status does not mean that a quick decision must be taken on NATO membership. NATO members continue to encourage and support Ukraine in the implementation of reforms, including in the areas of defense and security, civilian oversight and democratic oversight, and the fight against Corruption.
