“The adoption of this Law in the face of the building up the Russian forces along the Ukraine’s borders and in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine creates the effective mechanism of protection of Ukraine against the Russian armed aggression. The protection of Ukraine is a nationwide deal and is carried out both in the controlled territories of our state and in the occupied ones,” Kyrylo Budanov, Chief of the Defence intelligence of Ukraine noted.

It is a reminder that on July 16, 2021, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine determined the legal and organizational principles of national resistance. 313 people’s deputies supported the draft law no. 5557 in the second reading and as a whole.

The Law takes into account the experience of NATO member states, in particular, Lithuania, Estonia and Poland, modern practices of comprehensive defence organization and national peculiarities of organizing the resistance to the aggressor. It is provided the implementation of a general military training system for population, the development of the territorial defence and the resistance movement, as well as involvement of all levels of the population of Ukraine.
