The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine has approved the Plan of Defense of Ukraine - for the first time in history. Oleksiy Danilov, the Secretary of the Council said so at a briefing.
"This document gives clear answers to challenges that Ukraine is facing now", Danilov said.
According to him, the authority worked on this document for two years. The official did not give the press any more details about the plan.
Last month, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine submitted a draft of a new strategic document called “State Defense Plan” for consideration of the government. It is noted that the development of the project lasted during 2019-2021. According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran, the document was developed in cooperation with all departments of the security and defense sector of Ukraine.
He also noted that the analysis of the current system of state strategic planning in the field of defense showed the ineffectiveness of existing approaches when the main role was given to the military authorities of the Armed Forces, which did not have sufficient powers to fully involve other state bodies in the planning process.
