Roman Mashovets, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, discussed with Defense Attaché Brittany Stewart and other representatives of the US Embassy in Ukraine the preparations for the visit of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the United States of America.
In particular, they discussed the preparation of bilateral agreements on deepening Ukrainian-American defense cooperation, the development of projects in the field of research and testing, and the provision of US security assistance to Ukraine.
The parties also spoke about the key issues of reforming the security and defense sector of Ukraine, in particular on improving the system of military command and control, defense planning, strengthening democratic civilian control over the defense forces and distributing powers between the Minister of Defense of Ukraine and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. Those issues are planned, among other things, to be settled by the bill “On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine Concerning Improving Defense Planning Procedures”, which is being studied by the Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence and is being prepared for a second reading in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
Brittany Stewart spoke about the work carried out by the American Embassy in preparation for the visit of Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the United States, and assured of the support of the Ukrainian security and defense sector.
