LONDON (Reuters) – Ukraine will join the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) as a “contributing participant”, the NATO-accredited military research institution said in a statement on Friday.
“Ukraine could bring valuable first-hand knowledge of several adversaries within the cyber domain to be used for research, exercises and training,” CCDCOE Director Colonel Jaak Tarien said in a statement on the CCDCOE website.
Ukraine would be admitted to the centre as a “contributing participant” after writing to express its interest in joining the NATO CCDCOE in a letter, the statement said.
“The centre has already expanded its membership outside the NATO nations,” it added.
