Moreover, Danyliuk said that due to the planned significant changes, the NSDC of Ukraine will become a leading state institution to develop concepts of national security in all spheres, as well as coordinate the work of other state bodies and oversee the implementation of national security decisions.
"First of all, we need to move away from the model of situational response to threats. It is crucial to systematically analyze and predict potential crises. For this purpose we are already working on a strategy that would comprehensively respond to the key modern challenges," secretary said.
