President of Ukraine Signed the Decree under which 24th January is the Day of the Foreign Intelligence of Ukraine

It was on 24th January 1919 that the first unit of the national intelligence was created in the Ukrainian People’s Republic. From that day on, as part of the Political Department of the UPR of the Directory, began to operate a Department of Foreign Information whose task was intelligence work on enemies actively acting against the UPR and on the countries – potential enemies.

On January 24, 2019, Ukraine’s Foreign Intelligence will celebrate at the state level its 100th anniversary. We congratulate colleagues on coming historical justice and reviving national intelligence identity of defenders of Ukraine!
