KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. Ukraine has completed the development of the target program on expanding ties with NATO, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Wednesday.
The completed target program will be presented to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko today, Yatsenuyk said. The program includes "5 main blocs that will be fulfilled in the framework of cooperation between Ukraine and NATO," he added.
"The Ukrainian army must meet NATO standards," the prime minister said, noting the importance of Ukrainian servicemen’s social adaptation and physical rehabilitation of those injured in Donbas. "Around $700,000 is available in the framework of this program, which we can use to provide medical aid to our servicemen and do complex operations and prosthetics," Yatsenyuk said.
There are also plans to carry out "modernization of communications systems and information exchange for the Ukrainian Armed Forces," enhance cyber security and set up funds for utilization of military equipment and radioactive waste, he added.
"This is our program for cooperation with NATO in 2015," Yatsneyuk concluded.
