Good Governance
After the start of the war in Donbas, the budget for security and defence increased from 14 billion UAH in 2014 to 267 billion UAH in 2021, with 43% of this amount coming from the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine.

Despite the availability of additional resources, the current state of governance in the security and defence sector cannot guarantee quality and decent provision of the Ukrainian army, which threatens Ukraine’s national security. Serious conflicts of interest, corrupt practices by officials, and the lack of a culture of good governance in the security and defence sector lead to inefficient provision of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the necessary goods and services. As a result, the Ukrainian service members do not have adequate protection.

NAKO is actively cooperating with the Ministry of defence to improve management in this sector. We strive to improve the social security and general welfare of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in particular in matters relating to housing, construction, land, and medical services.
