(SETimes) Deeper NATO-Ukraine ties are especially important for the country against a background of ongoing conflict with Russia, military experts said.
The Ukrainian government has adopted several resolutions allowing access to top secret documents for NATO experts who arrived in Ukraine to help the new authorities reform the armed forces, Ostap Semerak, the minister overseeing government operations, told journalists in Kyiv. […]
"The fact that Ukraine is trying to build its relationship with NATO is a great prospect," Oleksandr Sushko, director of the Institute of Euro-Atlantic Co-operation, told SETimes. "The North Atlantic Alliance is becoming a key reference point for us. The Alliance serves as the standard for us to reform our armed forces."
Sushko said now Ukrainian soldiers have a chance to increase the level of communication with foreign partners, gain necessary knowledge and improve their skills.
"In addition to access to classified documents, we need to create interdepartmental teams of mid-level officers to share their experiences," Sushko said. "Only by doing this will we be able to reform our armed forces and improve the interoperability of our army and NATO forces."
