ISSUES TO BE RESOLVED BY THE REFORM
The change of Ukraine’s political course and its rapprochement with the European Union triggered aggression on the part of the Russian Federation, which the security and defence sector was not prepared for. Threats to the national interests of Ukraine aggravated rapidly in all areas becoming large-scale and complex in their nature. Efforts of the Ukrainian national security entities with regard to neutralizing these threats in 2014–2016 proved to be insufficiently effective, resulting in the loss of territory, significant economic decline and deterioration of social standards in Ukraine.
The political management of the security and defence sector as well as its reform are being implemented without any systematic analysis, without creating an integrated system of interrelated legal regulations, development programs, plans and relevant financial and logistical support. The promptness of adopting management decisions in the sphere of national security remains low, which does not ensure timely response to new threats. The lack of a sustainable mechanism for modelling and forecasting as a basis for decision-making makes any pre-emptive action impossible.
The interaction of governmental agencies with civil society organizations and the expert communities in the field of national security remains inefficient. When shaping the national security policy, the highest state authorities tend to disregard even scientific solutions developed by relevant government agencies.
