Canada’s representative on Ukraine’s Defence Reform Advisory Board (DRAB) Jill Sinclair positively assessed the activities of the defense department of Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.
At a webinar entitled “Ukrainian Conference on Reforms, Successes and Challenges, the Role of Canada One Year Later” with the participation of representatives of the Congress of Ukrainians of Canada and the World Congress of Ukrainians, Jill Sinclair released some assessments on the activities of the Ukrainian defense department.
She considers the state of reforming the Ukrainian defense sector to be fairly close to positive.
This evidenced by NATO’s decision to grant Ukraine the status of the member of the Enhanced Opportunity Program, which Jill Sinclair called a colossal step forward.
Jill Sinclair also positively commented on amendments to the legislation of Ukraine, which will be implemented after appropriate procedural approval by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (and individual initiatives will have 52 amendments), on reforming the management system (C2), modernizing the financial system of the defense sector, and on changes in approaches to professional military education aimed at developing the human potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“Ms. Jill Sinclair separately emphasized the role of the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak, who together “demonstrate an exceptional level of civil-military cooperation” and “make progress in the right direction,” the statement reads.
