The new Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran emphasized this on March 11.
Taking into account our realities, the primary objective of the Ministry of Defense, instead of the ambitious one but unachievable goal of fully adapting the Ukraine's Armed Forces to NATO standards in the near future, should be a very real goal - to maximize the ability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to interoperate with Alliance forces

He noted that the urgent need to reform the military sphere is to implement NATO standards in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The transfer of the C2 system to J-, G-, S- structures is taking place in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Changing the structure of a country's military leadership is only a part of a multidimensional process of reforming the Armed Forces. That is why it is important to complete the separation of authority between the Ministry of Defense, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and the General Staff in the new structure, emphasized the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran.
