Members of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine have discussed and supported the draft law "On National Security of Ukraine" at the meeting.
This law was drafted in close cooperation with experts from NATO, the USA and the European Union in order to bring the Ukrainian legislative framework in line with the standards of NATO member states. After adoption by the Parliament, this law should become the basis for the development and updating of legislation in the field of national security and defense.
According to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, the Law "On National Security of Ukraine" should generalize and reduce all the already implemented and planned reforms of the security and defense sector of Ukraine to a common denominator, "and combine not only the basic principles of national security, but also the issue of democratic civil control and planning basics in these areas".
He added that the bill is to increase the efficiency of all components of the security and defense sector in accordance with the norms and standards of NATO and the EU.
"The adoption of this bill without delay should become an important element in the protection of Ukrainian statehood and counteraction to Russian aggression," O. Turchinov emphasized in the commentary.
