Defense Ministry, Darnytsia district sign cooperation agreement

The Defense Ministry of Ukraine and the Darnytsia District State Administration in the City of Kyiv have signed the agreement on cooperation in implementation of the state program for the development of the Armed Forces of Ukraine over the period until 2011.

The agreement was signed by Defense Minister Yuriy Yekhanurov and District State Administration Chair Vitaliy Stashuk.

Yuriy Yekhanurov said that the defense ministry had already signed agreements on cooperation with nearly a half of Ukrainian regions, adding that he viewed each district of Kyiv as a separate region, so the defense ministry would work with each district state administration of the city separately. The minister expressed hope that the agreement would make it possible in the first place to settle the question of housing for the military.
