Current Security Environment and the Status of National Resilience in Ukraine

The study of security environment, identification of dangerous trends, factors of influence, and risks and threats to national security allows for a well-grounded choice of an optimal national resilience ensuring model and the appropriate mechanisms for the state in the current conditions. However, a comprehensive analysis of existing capabilities, practices, regulations, and organization of activities in the field of national security, crisis management, and public administration helps to identify vulnerabilities and systemic challenges with regard to ensuring national resilience, as well as formulate the priorities in terms of its further enhancement. Analysis of these issues has a scientific and practical significance in the context of substantiating the expedience of creating a national resilience ensuring system in Ukraine, and identification of its key features, taking into account the identified regularities and essential characteristics of the national resilience concept.
