Ukraine intends to create cyber forces within its Army

Ukrainian authorities are considering the possibility of creating special cyber-forces in the ranks of the country's Armed Forces, stated Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine, Oleksandr Turchynov at the opening ceremony of the Cyber Threat Response Center.

"Modern warfare is impossible without cyber defense and without cyber-attacks. We are giving serious consideration to the issue that was reported by the General Staff about the creation of Cyber Forces within the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This is a serious issue. We're studying it, and both the Foreign Intelligence Service and Military Intelligence are working in this direction," Turchynov stated.

According to him, the creation of such troops was discussed at the National Cyber-security Center.

Earlier, on February 2, the Secretary of the NSDC launched the Cyber Threat Operational Response Center, which will cooperate with NATO countries.
