Reforms in Ukroboronprom, SSU, and Ministry of Defence to be 2022 priorities for G7 Ambassadors
A number of reforms of the security and defence sector are still being given priority.                
  • Reform of the corporate governance in the military-industrial complex in accordance with international standards ;                
  • Transformation of the Security Service of Ukraine into a modern counterintelligence agency separated from anti-corruption and law enforcement authorities;                
  • Accountability and transparency in the Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces of Ukraine;                
  • Further implementation of the Law "On the National Security of Ukraine" and development of civilian oversight in the sector;                
  • Establishment of an effective mechanism for the verification of applications for investments in order to protect strategic industries and technologies of Ukraine.              
Moreover, Ukraine is called for further integration of human rights and gender equality aspects, in particular, in the security and defence sector. Along with the security and defence sector reforms, G7 Ambassadors prioritized the judicial reform, changes in the law enforcement system, reforms in the energy industry and economy, in the sphere of anti-corruption and building effective governance.                       
The Ambassadors Group also emphasized that the reforms of all above-mentioned sectors can only be successful if the key legislation is not only adopted but effectively implemented as well.                            
As a reminder, Ambassadors of G7 countries created the Support Group on Ukraine as early as 2015. Its mission is to promote the reforms taking into account the opinions of the government, parliament, civil society, business, and expert community.
