The plan was approved at a meeting of the Cabinet earlier on Wednesday. According to the document the Ukrainian armed forces’ reform will be part and parcel of implementing the section Political Dialogue and Reform. Toward the end of next year the government plans to draft a new version of the military doctrine, new state programs for the development of the armed forces, the defense-industrial complex and other military planning documents adjusted for the euro integration priority of the foreign policy.
The European External Action Service will be Kiev’s partner in drafting a new military doctrine and other aforesaid documents.
The agreement does not impose any restrictions on the operation of the defense-industrial complex. For instance, under the Kiev-Brussels agreement military and dual purpose products are not liable to the operation of zone of free trade with the EU.
