    Twenty Swedish military instructors will be heading to Ukraine this year to offer first-aid medical training to the Ukrainian military, a Swedish newspaper reported Sunday.

    The Swedish government decided to more than double the amount of funds it is allocating for a current project to promote “security reforms” in Ukraine.

    This year’s funding was jacked up to 1.2 million crowns from 500,000 last year, Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported.

    Swedish military officials did not say exactly where the training would be held, saying only that eastern Ukraine was definitely not an option.
