According to him, Ukraine in the next year to implement “the obligations of defence reform in the framework of the Strategic defence Bulletin, including the transition to a civilian Minister of defence in 2018“.

Strategic defense Bulletin was promulgated by the decree of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in may 2016. The President then called it a “momentous programme of reform of the security sector“. The Bulletin noted Poroshenko, “completely rebuilds the APU, the SBU and other law enforcement units and introduces the brand new conditions of the preparation of the NCO“.

Ukraine has intensified its cooperation with NATO in 2014, amid the annexation of Crimea by Russia and the beginning of Russian aggression in the Donbas. At the end of 2014, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law that requires the refusal of Ukraine from the policy of “non-alignment“. In June 2017, the Parliament approved a law confirming Ukraine’s intention to join NATO.

Poroshenko said that the decision on Ukraine’s accession to the Alliance will be taken at the referendum.
