Today meeting of the acting chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Serhii Paraschenko and representatives of the executive authorities with the delegation of the Directorate General of the European Commission for External Relations (RELEX) took place.

Representatives of the Directorate visited the Odesa region during the visit to the Regional Representation of the Consultative Mission of the European Union.

The cooperation of Odesa Oblast State Administration with the Consultative Mission of the European Union has not been the first year and has given its positive results. Consultations conducted before mass events contribute to the positive dynamics and coherent cooperation of law enforcement with the experts of the CCJE. New mechanisms of cooperation are being created.

"Democratic civilian control over the security and defense sector is a fundamental principle. The implementation of civilian control in accordance with other principles, such as rule of law, legitimacy, accountability, transparency, efficiency and effectiveness will further strengthen democracy in Ukraine, in particular, in the Odessa region, "said Sergei Paraschenko.

Also, the oblast's head of state stressed that the security situation in the region is one of the priorities in the work of state authorities. That is why there is a need to study and involve European and international experience on this issue.

Recall that in early March 2018 in Odessa, a regional representation of the Consultative Mission of the European Union in Ukraine (CMES) was opened.
