The European Defense Agency will help Ukraine fight cybersecurity threats.
On Friday, Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze met with the Executive Director of the European Defense Agency Jorge Domecq in Kyiv.
“At this moment we have four main directions of cooperation with the Ukrainian side. Taking into account your experience and the urgent need to develop the defense sector, I propose to submit proposals and expand the scope of cooperation that would be mutually beneficial for both of sides,” Domecq said.
During the meeting, the sides discussed deepening military and technological cooperation with the European Union in cybersecurity and landmines, Ukraine’s participation in joint EU military and civilian operations and the prospects of participation in the EU’s Permanent Structured Cooperation in the Field of Security and Defense (PESCO), the Governmental Portal said.
The hybrid war against Ukraine is happening on all fronts, including cyberspace, Klympush-Tsyntsadze said.
“It is likely to expect Russia to intervene in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in 2019. That is why the issue of cybersecurity is of particular importance to Ukraine,” she said.
