The defense plan of Ukraine will be presented next year. The main objective of this year is to conduct a defense review and analysis of security context. Minister of Defense Andriy Zagorodniuk announced this in an interview with Radio Liberty.
“In general, strategic planning is one of our highest priorities. Because the president, just a few days after the appointment of the government, set the Ministry of Defense’s task to develop the so-called defense plan,” Zagorodniuk said.
It is reported that this document will be periodically reviewed, "because the situation is dynamic." At the same time, in parallel with it, concepts will be developed for each type of the Armed Forces.
