Ukraine to create foreign intelligence academy

KYIV. May 15 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian government on Wednesday approved the re-organization of the Institute of the Foreign Intelligence Service into a Foreign Intelligence Academy.

The academy will be successor to the institute, whose current students will continue their studies at the academy.

The decision was prompted by the country having a lack of scientific or higher-education institutions which provide highly qualified training in foreign intelligence.

The institute was set up in 2007 as a departmental higher-education institution to train and retrain Ukrainian foreign intelligence specialists.
