EU to launch advisory mission for civilian security sector reform in Ukraine

Council of the European Union (EU) said on Monday to launch an advisory mission for civilian security sector reform in Ukraine on Dec. 1 with an initial mandate of two years.
According to a statement by the EU, the mission will assist the Ukrainian authorities in the field of civilian security sector reform, including police and rule of law.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin also signed the Status of Mission Agreement (SOMA) between the EU and Ukraine. This agreement will allow the mission to operate as needed within Ukraine and prepare it for launch on Dec. 1.


Over last week, particularly on the night of Nov. 9, hostilities in Ukraine were at their worst in months, with a heavy exchange of artillery shelling in and around Donetsk.

The tension has escalated since Ukrainian authorities decided to repeal law which grants "special status" to Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which raised fears that a process of prisoners-of-war swap may be disrupted.

The Ukrainian government and the insurgent leadership inked a ceasefire deal on Sept. 5 in the Belarussian capital city of Minsk, aiming at de-escalating the tension and facilitating the release of hundreds of prisoners-of-war.

But after Kiev decided to abolish the law on "special status" of the two regions, the insurgent leadership said they will not observe the Minsk peace protocol.
