NATO expects Ukraine to pass five important laws in order to deepen cooperation between them. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna in an interview with

"We are talking about a law on parliamentary control of security and defense, the draft of which was registered in the parliament under № 1204, amendments to the legislation on the State Security Service (№3196), a law on intelligence (№2412-d), on defense procurements (№2398-d) and a law on state secret which is still being drafted,” Stefanishyna noted.

According to her, the law on state secrets occupies a special place even among these important bills because it concerns the "transformation of thinking".

The need for the adoption of this law is caused by the fact that most documents relating to state secrets are inherited from Soviet times.

As we reported earlier, on June 12, Ukraine was granted membership in NATO’s Enhanced Opportunities Program.

This status is part of NATO's Partnership Interoperability Initiative, which aims to support and deepen cooperation between Allies and Partners who have made significant contributions to NATO-led operations and missions.
