Bakanov submits new draft law on SBU to president

Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Ivan Bakanov has submitted to President Volodymyr Zelensky a new draft law "On the Security Service of Ukraine,” according to the SBU press service.

"The SBU submitted to the President of Ukraine a draft law “On the Security Service of Ukraine"... The document was also sent to the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, the National Institute for Strategic Studies," reads the report.

The SBU noted that the bill takes into account the best European experience and international practices in the field of security.

Amending the law “On the Security Service of Ukraine” is an important component of the reform, due to which the SBU should be transformed into a high-tech, mobile and optimal special service capable of effectively countering new challenges and threats to the state security of Ukraine, according to the press service.

It is noted that the new draft law "On the Security Service of Ukraine" was submitted to members of relevant parliamentary committees, ambassadors of the G7 countries, leadership of the EU Delegation to Ukraine, the NATO Representation to Ukraine and the European Union Advisory Mission. “International partners supported the reform of the Service and expressed their readiness to provide assistance in its implementation,” the SBU stated.
