“We must initiate changes in the legislative acts to avoid excessive classification of information on the state defense order,” President Petro Poroshenko said during a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council.
According to him, this issue was discussed with the Minister of Defense and the Head of the Security Service.
The President also demands to ensure the widespread use of competitive procurement procedures. Petro Poroshenko noted that the legislative acts entitled the Ministry of Defense to carry out these procurements independently.
“At the same time, information about the latest developments, in particular missile technology and modern information technologies, will be further protected by the state,” the Head of State emphasized.
