Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov said that the territorial defense units would be provided with the necessary weapons, noting that Russia would not be able to take an easy walk in the event of an invasion.

He said this in an interview with Apostrophe.

Danilov noted the law prescribing powers and responsibilities of local governments, heads of regional and district state administrations is detailed and “more or less perfect to start addressing the issue,". Danilov said, adding that territorial defense forces should be armed efficiently to allow them to perform their immediate functions. This is a very detailed law that had long been in the making, also being the subject of great debate.

"Today we live in a modern world, and weapons that may be small in size are very big in terms of their effect. And now to say that there must be some kind of heavy equipment, etc ... Today there is an understanding that in the modern world, this isn’t how success is measured," Danilov added.
