In the East of Ukraine will begin operation the joint forces.

After two weeks, April 30, in the Donbass will be the last day of the antiterrorist operation (ATO). After that there will start the operation of the United forces.

This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

“The format should change April 30. It radically changes the organization of the Department of military structure,” he said in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels.

Now the ATO is conducted under the auspices of the SBU.

“The interaction between the security service and the Armed forces of Ukraine, the national police, the national guard is totally different than what is provided for in the act on the reintegration of Donbass. The user goes to the Armed forces of Ukraine. In APU, there are additional powers to respond to aggression, and units of the National guard, the security Service of Ukraine, State border service, National police and other law enforcement agencies are switching to the subordination of the Armed forces of Ukraine”, – said Poroshenko.

He also thanked Parliament for supporting his proposals for a strategy of liberation of Donbass.

“This will make the actions of the Ukrainian military is much more efficient not only in repelling armed aggression, but also in combating subversive groups,” – said the President.

The number of attempts of terrorist attacks against Ukraine has already exceeded 400. While the terrorists are preparing in the camps located in the Rostov, Belgorod, Kursk and other regions of the Russian Federation, said Poroshenko. Some of them recruited and recruited in the Ukrainian occupied territories, some of them Russian citizens.

“The Ukrainian state should be United, strong, together with the Ukrainian people in order to counteract these threats,” – said the head of state.

Earlier in the APU told that the main difference between ATO and operations of the United forces.
