A new law on national security of Ukraine, developed with the participation of international partners, will determine the main directions of development of the Armed forces of the country, says Secretary of the NSDC Oleksandr Turchynov.
“Ukraine needs effective Armed forces, able to defend their homeland. The main directions of development of the army is already defined in the national security Strategy, Military doctrine, the Strategic defence Bulletin. These ideas will also be enshrined in the new national security law, which was developed in close cooperation with our foreign partners”, – Turchynov said at the opening ceremony of the Kyiv Mohyla business school “Strategic leadership: the sector of security and defense of Ukraine” on Thursday.

If several years ago we had a strong data service and the army, not got to the question of restoration of territorial integrity”, – said Secretary of the NSDC.
