Opening the meeting, Ruslan Biloshitsky stressed the importance of conducting such exercises and the responsible attitude of participants to the implementation of all stages of the Program, including command-staff exercises.
During the exercise, the Ukrainian Rescue Service and other national agencies, working remotely, using online tools, due to the difficult epidemiological situation in the world caused by COVID-19, will practice actions in an emergency, including the elimination of the consequences of floods. At the same time, communication with European partners will be carried out using the ZOOM online platform.
Thus, the SES representatives discussed the format and algorithm of the exercises, channels of interaction with partner countries, and other organizational issues.
Let us remind you that the SES of Ukraine is the main beneficiary of the EU project «Program for Prevention, Preparedness, and Response to Natural and Man-Made Disasters in Eastern Partnership Countries ». The purpose of this program is to strengthen and develop the capacity of the countries participating in the Eastern Partnership in the field of civil protection by attracting expert and technical support from the EU.
