The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine plans to empower the president to approve the defense plan of Ukraine. The bill was adopted as the base at the session broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.

According to the bill, the president upon the submission of the government will not only approve the military administrative division of the territory, but also the defense plan of Ukraine. The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will define the order of development of the defense plan.

The Law On Defense of Ukraine will define that the defense plan of Ukraine is a complex of documents, which establish content, volumes, executors, procedure and terms of political, social, military, scientific, technical, information, legal, organizational and other measures by the state on preparation to armed defense and its protection in case of the armed aggression or armed conflict.
