Member of the Committee on National Security and Defense of Ukraine Andrei Teteruk said, in turn, that the new law will bring the country closer to NATO standards and strengthen security. According to him, it also concerns the production weapons and military equipment according to NATO standards.
NATO standards will not just beautiful words. This will involve both an increase in funding for defense and a phased modernization of weapons. This includes the production of Ukrainian weapons and military equipment in accordance with the standards of the alliance.- he added.
Recall that in mid-February, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko introduced a draft law on national security. Rada believes that the law is capable of bringing Ukraine’s entry into NATO closer.
Meanwhile, 20 February Poroshenko signed a law on the reintegration of Donbass, which declares Russia an “aggressor country” and significantly strengthens the legal framework for the use of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other security forces, which actually opens Kiev the road to a military invasion of Donbass.
