President Petro Poroshenko congratulated the servicemen of the Ukraine's Defense Ministry Main Intelligence Directorate on the 26th anniversary of its founding. During the celebrations, he noted that intelligence, along with other special services, should minimize Russia's influence during Ukrainian elections, the presidential press service reported.

Among the tasks of intelligence, the president called the identification of operations by the Russian special services and their special means of influence.

"Our common goal is to work with our international partners to promptly react and minimize the influence of the Russian Federation, including in the electoral process, which will be held next year," Poroshenko said.

The Head of State also noted the strengthening of cooperation between the Ukrainian special services and the army with international partners with the aim of carefully gathering evidence to bring the aggressor country to justice in the international court.

"We will never forgive, we will bring those who kill Ukrainian soldiers and Ukrainian citizens to justice," he said.

Poroshenko also presented awards to scouts who distinguished themselves in the ATO area and during the Operation of the Joint Forces.

Earlier it was reported that in August 2018, 18 Ukrainian servicemen were killed in the Joint Forces Operation area.

Both presidential and parliamentary elections will be held in Ukraine the next year. Elections of the President of Ukraine, according to the law, are scheduled for March 31, 2019. Elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine should be held on October 27, 2019.
