The active stage of the project “Rapid Trident-2006” will be held within the NATO Partnership for Peace (PfP) which is scheduled on July, 2006. It will take place in the National Defence Academy of Ukraine.

The key target of the exercises is to improve concurrency of the HQs and the divisions of the countries, usage of the practical experience gained in the previous exercises and peaceful operations, to intensify cooperation and mutual understanding of the participants.
