The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted in the second reading and in general the draft law on intelligence.
258 deputies voted “for”, “against” — 9, “abstained” — 50.
The subjects of the intelligence community of Ukraine in the law name the coordination body for intelligence, the Security Service of Ukraine, the Foreign Intelligence Service, the intelligence of the Ministry of Defense, the intelligence agency of the State Border Service, other components of the security and defense sector identified by the NSDC, which are involved by intelligence agencies for intelligence tasks.
