Today, on April 15, 2021, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council will be held under the chairmanship of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The agenda includes a detailed discussion of the security situation in the east of the country, as well as the situation in the national economy given the ongoing process of breaking the long-standing corruption schemes.
One of the key issues on the agenda of the National Security and Defense Council, for obvious reasons, will be considered confidentially and will concern the discussion of the situation in Donbas. The state fully understands all the possible risks, factors in any scenarios, has relevant information in all relevant areas, constantly correlates its positions with partners.
In addition, members of the National Security and Defense Council will consider a second expanded package of personal sanctions against organizers and perpetrators of smuggling schemes. Smuggling, which has reached an alarming scale over the decades, significantly undermines our economic security and requires urgent solutions. In addition to specialized anti-smuggling solutions, the meeting will touch upon broader issues related to the economic security of the state.
Cybersecurity is also an important issue. Separately, special issues from the Head of State will be submitted for consideration by the members of the collegial body in the section "Miscellaneous".
The Office of the President will inform the public about the results of the meeting on the official website.
