Ukraine will develop a security reform that will affect both the Armed forces and the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a video communication with students and professors from leading educational and research institutions in Israel.
“This is one of the models which are considered in the security reform, which we are preparing on the basis of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. I'm not sure what exactly such a model will be, but we will definitely consider this model with society, with the public, — he answered the question whether it is possible in Ukraine to introduce the Israeli security model, when all teenagers are subject to conscription into the army.
At the same time, Zelensky stressed, a significant part of Ukrainians already know how to fight, since they joined the territorial defense .
“After the emergence of territorial defense, a large number of people, it is already in the hundreds of thousands, defended our state first with their bare hands, and then with weapons in their hands. This suggests that the way it was before, in terms of protecting our state and the way it used to be, in terms of (staffing – ed.) of our army and the number of military men, – it won't be like that. The approach will be changed”, – noted the President.
