KIEV, December 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, has allowed foreign troops to participate in the country’s military exercises next year.

The draft law has been submitted by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. A total of 239 MPs voted in favor of the decision on Friday, above the required minimum of 226 votes.

"The adoption of the law will ensure the implementation of tasks in the sphere of security and defense in the entire context of fulfilling the priority foreign policy of the state," an explanatory note reads.

The law will also increase the efficiency of implementing national programs on developing Ukraine’s armed forces and allow boosting financial injections to the national economy due to providing units of other states with goods or services.
