Military and law enforcement functions of the National Guards must be improved, says minister  

The operation on deoccupation of Donbas will be conducted within the period of the next two years, Ukraine's interior minister Arsen Avakov claimed during the National Guards military council extended meeting on Friday. 

"I am convinced that in the next two years we'll be deoccupating Donbass. And the National Guards will play the crucial role in it. Everything we do now is aimed to be ready for this process. So the military component must be improved, as well as law enforcement component," the minister said.
