‘Technical modernization of the State Emergencies Service is extremely important; the Ukrainian rescue teams should have everything they need. That’s why I’d like to enhance cooperation with NATO in this particular area,’ Ukraine’s Premier Volodymyr Groysman said that during his meeting with NATO Deputy Head Rose Gottemoeller. The meeting took place within the frameworks of 10th Kyiv security forum.
The sides basically agreed to cooperate in this area back in February this year; within these agreements, NATO Deputy Head Rose Gottemoeller will visit Ukraine once again, in May, so as to hold a number of meetings and negotiate with the Ukrainian side. Groysman, in turn, said that by that time, the government would be ready to assess the needs, design the joint plan of the reform and approve it.
Taking into account the scale of Russian aggression in Ukraine, NATO Deputy Head Rose Gottemoeller offered to refresh the recommendations list for the Group of NATO consultative support on protection of critical infrastructure.
