Ukraine should focus on implementing the national security law it adopted last year that moves it closer to NATO standards, Alexander Vinnikov, NATO’s head representative to Ukraine said.

The law, which was adopted last June and came into force in July, defines Ukraine’s security principles and policy goals.

Its adoption was a key step in bringing Ukraine closer to Euro-Atlantic standards, Vinnikov said.

NATO calls on Ukraine to focus on its full implementation, including introducing and implementing further secondary legislation, Vinnikov said today at the sixth meeting on parliamentary and public reform, Ukrinform reported.

Support for the reform of the defense and security sector is one of the main objectives of NATO’s Comprehensive Assistance Package that was approved by the leaders of NATO member states and governments in 2016, Vinnikov said.

In the defense and security sector, 2019 is crucial for Ukraine. Vinnikov encouraged Ukraine to keep tempo in reforms implementation.
