Abstract

In the Armed Forces of Ukraine, work continues to improve the efficiency of defense planning and management of defense resources. The algorithm of defense planning for the development of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, step by step, uses the results of the analysis of the experience of the leading countries of the world, which have moved from defense planning based on threats to defense planning, focused on the acquisition by troops (forces) of the capabilities necessary to fulfill the tasks assigned to them. The list of tasks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is determined on the basis of probable scenarios of their use. One of the key points in the effective planning of the use of the Armed Forces according to the corresponding scenario is a real and reasonable determination of the amount of necessary defense resources (human, logistical, financial). At the present stage of transformation of the defense planning system to NATO standards, as well as the application of the planning method based on capabilities in the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it is necessary to improve the existing methodological approaches to determine the needs for defense resources for the use of the Armed Forces of Ukraine according to certain scenarios of their use. Also, an urgent task today is the need to assess the sufficiency of the real economic and temporary capabilities of the state to ensure the use of the Armed Forces for the scenarios of their use determined by it. The general algorithm for assessing the cost of defense resources for the use of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in conflicts of varying intensity should take into account the economic realities of the development of the country's national economy. In the article, the authors proposed their views on improving the existing approaches to calculating the amount of necessary defense resources, the procedure and content of assessing their cost according to the corresponding scenarios for the use of the Armed Forces in order to further assess the economic capabilities of the state to provide them. The main results of the article are the procedure for assessing the cost of fulfilling the tasks assigned to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the cost of conducting hostilities of varying intensity, as well as the general algorithm for making calculations.
