Particular attention was paid to the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on the abolition of e-declaration,” the NSDC press service informs.

As noted, Danilov informed about the draft Presidential decree to establish a separate center for combating hybrid threats under the NSDC Staff.

“We monitor all the processes taking place in the information space around the clock and realize that building a sustainable system for countering hybrid threats and establishing a relevant structure is extremely urgent,” the NSDC Secretary said.

Danilov also noted that the new National Security Strategy of Ukraine provided for the development of 14 sectorial strategies, including information security strategy.
