EU Statement on Ukraine’s Law on National Security

July 09, 2018

The European Union welcomes the adoption of the Law on National Security as an important step towards bringing Ukraine’s security sector closer to European principles and standards. The Law provides an important basis for further reform of the Security Service of Ukraine, which should now be advanced and completed. We encourage Ukraine to focus on the full implementation of the Law, including through the timely development, adoption, and implementation of related legislation. The EU, with its EU Advisory Mission, will continue to work as part of the International Advisory Group to provide advice and support to Ukraine throughout this process.
