Security Service of Ukraine
After the proclamation of Ukraine's independence on August 24, 1991, there immediately arose the question of the liquidation of the Soviet national security system and the creation of new government institutions to protect Ukraine's sovereignty and accomplish other objectives in the national security sphere.
One of the first steps on this path was the establishment of the Commission on the development of the Ukrainian National Security Agency Concept. In view of the results of its work, as well as of the work of the Commission of the Ukraine Parliament on the reorganization of national security agencies, the Parliament adopted the resolution "On the Creation of the National Security Service of Ukraine" (NSS of Ukraine, NSSU) dated September 20, 1991. The same resolution abolished the UkSSR Committee for State Security.
At the initial stage of the formation of this agency, senior personnel of the NNSU and its principal structural units were appointed. In the period from September 1991 to February 1992, manning charts for units belonging to the NNSU Central Departments, the NSS of the Crimean ASSR, regional agencies, military counterintelligence agencies and the NSSU Personnel Training Institute were prepared and approved. This was followed by the commencement of recruitment of personnel that swore allegiance to the Ukrainian people.
The activities of the NSSU personnel were targeted at tackling the most important issues of national security and providing informational and analytical support for the country's leaders.
On March 25, 1992, the Parliament of Ukraine adopted the Law of Ukraine "On the Security Service of Ukraine", providing a clear-cut legal basis for the subsequent development of the Security Service.
