Brussels, 9 May 2023

The European Union Military Committee (EUMC) will meet at the level of EU Chiefs of Defence (CHODs). The meeting will be chaired by General Robert Brieger, EUMC’s Chair.

The EUMC will discuss the state of play of key military objectives/work strands of the Strategic Compass implementation (EU Rapid Deployment Capacity, the Military Planning and Conduct Capability, EU C2); the EU support to Ukraine (current activities and sustainability in the longer term) and the lessons observed from Ukraine on joint procurement; finally, the future of EU military missions and the role of strategic communications in their support.

Following the opening intervention by the High Representative Josep Borrell, representatives from EU institutions, as well as several partner organisations and countries are expected to attend the meeting in dedicated sessions: the European External Action Service, the European Commission, the European Defence Agency, European Union Military Staff, NATO and Norway, Bosnia Herzegovina, Georgia, Serbia and Vietnam.

For the session dedicated to Ukraine, the CHODs look forward to welcoming the participation via videoconference of Lieutenant General Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
