The SBU stated that the goal is to ensure the counter-sabotage protection of state facilities and to enhance the security of the capital's residents and individuals under state protection, the SBU said. This is particularly crucial given Russia's armed aggression, which aims to destabilize Ukraine's socio-political situation.
