Donbas reintegration strategy discussed at meeting chaired by President

The strategy of reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories and development of a strong system of national security and defense was discussed at a meeting chaired by the President of Ukraine.

“In particular, it was said that the state is already developing effective tools for safe reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories. This process will include the creation of an international coalition to support our state's efforts to restore territorial integrity at all negotiating platforms, resumption of international talks on the de-occupation of Crimea, reintegration of children and youth, elaboration of mechanisms to address housing issues, ensuring information sovereignty and access to administrative services for the residents of the temporarily occupied territories,” the press service of the Head of State informs.

The parties also discussed strengthening the Ukrainian army, which will function in accordance with the principles, norms and standards of NATO member states.

The President commissioned Minister of Defense Andriy Taran to work out a clear plan for the provision of the Armed Forces with samples of new and qualitatively repaired equipment, and the terms of building a professional army. The Head of State also insists on providing all categories of servicepersons of the Armed Forces with high salaries and developing a clear program for providing housing for all servicepersons who need it.

“In addition, the parties considered the development of strategic industries. Volodymyr Zelensky set a task to increase the share of the defense order, improve management in this area and provide a plan for the development of the space industry,” the statement reads.
