«Building a safe country with sustainable development requires stable democratic institution, fighting the corruption and reducing the impact of the oligarchs. These are the most important concepts that we have to operate with in terms of security. We do not have to be limited to defense from military threats, but consider how to build a strong society», - Andreas von Bekerath, Ambassador of Sweden to Ukraine said during opening of the training "How to be prepared to the challenges of international security", that is held in Kyiv on the initiative of Arseniy Yatsenyuk Open Ukraine Foundation.

The Swedish Ambassador also highlighted the importance of making strategies and forecasts not only for international security, but in all spheres of life. «If a company does not have an appropriate strategy, such a company is not going to rise high. The strategy is needed even for raising children», - he said. 

It should be mentioned that on 28 November 2014 on the initiative of Arseniy Yatsenyuk Open Ukraine Foundation the practical training is held as part of Kyiv Youth Security Forum that will bring together young experts to simulate scenarios of progression of events in the international arena with participation of Ukraine.

As a result of practical work it's expected that in two weeks participants will present forecasts for changes in geopolitical location of centres, and ideas about behaviour and policy of major international actors. The best works will be presented for public discussion with participation of experienced experts.
