It should be implemented through the adoption of the draft law No. 5557 “On the basis of national resistance”. It will help to solve the problem of involvement the whole society in countering threats to national security and repelling aggression from another state, and development a clear policy at the state level aimed at organising national resistance in Ukraine as an integral part of the state’s comprehensive defence.
