2018 is the year of national security, for the first time, the Supreme Council officially recognized the Russian Federation as the aggressor and has assigned to it the responsibility for damages in the East of Ukraine. Although the act on the reintegration of Donbass not came the official start date of the war and the algorithm to return the occupied territories, but gone is the notion of the ATO.
It was replaced by a complex formulation of “resistance and deterrence of armed aggression”.
In addition, in 2018, tried to bring the Ukrainian army to NATO standards. For this adopted the law on National security. Where it clearly States that our goal is to join the Alliance. Also ordered to appoint the Minister – civil, not military. So Stepan Poltorak left, but not from office, and from the army. He became Minister without shoulder straps, in fact, as required by law.

And MPs have traditionally sought to overcome the corruption. To help NABOO, SAP and RRT with difficulty passed the law on anti-corruption High court. He will consider cases of top corrupt officials. However, due to the fact that the President and the Parliament could not agree about the update of the Central election Commission, most of its members sit in their seats for four years.
Updated the CEC in September 2018. Not to offend anyone, even increased the number of jobs from 15 to 17. And after the owners of the cars on avtonomera blocked the Parliament building, MPs had to legalize the prescription EuroBLECH. Rada allowed to import cars older than 8 years.
Customs clearance “EuroBLECH” under the new law: how to calculate excise tax
It is worth noting that the owners of cars on foreign registration were not satisfied. Because the formula for calculating the cost of the excise tax is entered the coefficient of age, which increases the cost of importation of old cars.
And on the last session day of the year the deputies have left the extension of the moratorium on sale of agricultural land until 2020. At the same time forced the government to introduce to Parliament a bill on the turnover of agricultural land to settle the market after the ban canceled.
