years we have succeeded in creating conditions (for operation of National
Guard), we will prolong our activities to provide support to the troops. This
year, we allocate the sum worth UAH 800 million to cover the needs of the
National Guard. The Ministry (of Internal Affairs) has a strategy (of
development of the National Guard), we will invest in it. Let's keep abreast
