The Security Service of Ukraine is the main body in the national system respon-sible for combating terrorism.
The SSU counters terrorism manifestations and coordinates the activities of other state authorities in this sphere. The SSU Counter-Terrorist Centre is responsible for this coordination.
The Centre’s staff systematically monitor the level of terrorist threat, gather online information received from partners and conduct drills at critical infrastruc-ture facilities.
In recent years, the SSU has gained crucial experience in uncovering and counter-ing armed terrorist groups infiltrating peaceful Ukrainian regions from the tem-porarily occupied territories.
The SSU shares its experience with foreign partners, especially with NATO and the EU. The Security Service actively interacts such partners to join forces in the fight against international terrorism and its financing.
