Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has plans to reform the country's state security system, his press service announced on Thursday.

The Ukrainian president has already instructed officials to draw up a plan of necessary changes.

"This document should clearly outline the role and the place of the state security system in the national defense system," Yanukovych's press service quoted him as saying.

The Ukrainian president said the state security system must become more accountable and open to democratic control. The legal framework regulating the operations of the security system should also be improved, he said.

"We need a highly professional military formation with law enforcement responsibilities, the tasks and the practical activities of which meet today's demands," Yanukovych said.

Yanukovych has initiated a range of changes, including budget, legal and tax reforms since he narrowly won the presidential elections in early 2010.
