The Law of Ukraine “On National Security” which was approved on June 21, brings Ukraine closer to
NATO standards. However, it can remain quite proclamatory unless amendments to special laws,
the law “On State Secret” in particular, are made. For instance, to enhance financial transparency of
expenses in the sector of defense and security, it is necessary to start working on statutory wording of the law on protection of state secret now.

The participants will speak about the following issues:

  • What are the key corruption risks in defense procurement?
  • How to reduce corruption risks in state defense order?
  • How to increase transparency of the defense budget?

This event will take place on July 3d at 3:20 p.m. in the Verhokvna Rada, in front of the press hall.
