The result of a collaborative with the Office of the President and relevant ministries and agencies work was the decision of the Council of 18 February 2020 “On the main indicators of the state defense order for 2020 and 2021, 2022”, enacted by the decree of the President of Ukraine of 27 February No. 59.
