The Common civil protection system will be created in Ukraine. This was announced by the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov today at the briefing after the meeting of the NSDC of Ukraine.

He explained that there were three levels of threat in this system: blue ‑ increased, orange ‑ high, red ‑ critical.
Oleksandr Turchynov said that criteria for identifying these threats would be also developed and actions for all subjects of the executive power, systems of the territorial defense and civil protection would be identified.
"Our citizens must know about current measures and what they should do in case of danger", ‑ he said.
In addition, the Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine said that we were talking about a set of measures of creation in Ukraine of the common civil protection system, which was under responsibility of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, Ministries and departments, which should begin with identification of civil protection objects and, in particular, work out a plan of study for higher and secondary schools and places of work.
