NSDC secretary comments on defense reform prospects
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksandr Danyliuk, said that the Ministry of Defense should deal exclusively with policy-making.
"Much of what should have been done has not been done, so it needs to be introduced, first of all, for our army to actually become stronger," Danyliuk told Channel 24.
"That is, there must be a quality management system. Even at this level, we have certain problems. Meanwhile, some basic things that every developed country should have in place have not been implemented. I believe that the Ministry of Defense should deal exclusively with policy-making," Danyliuk said, answering the question about the future of military reform.
To continue the reform, the official says, a coordination center has already been set up with the help of Western experts, in particular those from the U.S., Canada, and the UK.
At the same time, the official did not elaborate on the possible nominees for the post of defense minister in the new Cabinet.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Servant of the People party, which won snap parliament elections in a landlisde, named their candidates for the post of health and education ministers.
