Abstract:

This thesis analyses the strategy of modern Ukrainian - U.S. defense and military relations in three areas Defense Relations Military Relations and Civil-Military Relations. These relations are assessed in terms of their adequacy to obtain Ukraines overall strategic goals. The quantity and complexity of the U.S. defense and military engagement programs towards Ukraine have made the entire coordination process fragmented. The thesis concludes that the recent goals and objectives of existing relations should be concentrated on the Ukrainian Armed Forces transition to democratic civil-military relations. The transformation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is essential to maintaining progress toward the development of stable and democratic civil-military relations in Ukraine and its armed forces that are prepared to assume their place within European and Transatlantic Security.
