President Petro Poroshenko has appointed Yehor Bozhok chief of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine and introduced him to the staff.

Since June 2015, Bozhok has been the acting head of Ukraine’s NATO mission.

“I have known Yehor Bozhok for a long time as a patriot and a determined professional with vast experience of foreign work,” Poroshenko said.

According to the president, Bozhok's experience allowed him to coordinate the efforts of our international partners in support of Ukraine and boost the country's defence capacity. He noted that this activity is important for the protection of Ukraine's national interests.
