Regional agencies of the Security Service of Ukraine were established to promote effective exercise of the SSU's functions provided by law. Such regional agencies include SSU offices in oblasts and their subordinate interdistrict, district, and city units, whose location and territorial competence may not always coincide with the administrative and territorial division of Ukraine.
In the interest of national security, SSU agencies and units may be established at certain national strategic facilities and territories or at military formations as needed.
In carrying out their operations and performance of service functions, regional SBU Agencies are independent from local state administration and self-government authorities, as well as other officials, parties, or movements.
The Head of the SSU determines the procedure for the appointment of other SSU officials. Heads of regional SSU agencies in the regions of Ukraine are appointed with the approbation of the head of the local state administration.
