The concept will enhance the Ukraine’s defences, ensure effective reforms within the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and allow for more cooperation.

“The Ukrainian strategic choice is a stated wish of our people, our acceptance of key democratic values. The Ukrainian military will undergo development and achieve military criteria to join NATO and integrate into the European security community,’ the Ukraine’s Defence Minister stressed.
