Since October 2020, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) has played an outsized role in Ukrainian politics. The council reports to the president and has spearheaded several contentious reforms, including the recent introduction of the de-oligarchization policy. The council also participated in the controversial decision to remove the head of the Constitutional Court as well as to impose sanctions on the media holdings of certain oligarchs. What impact does the NSDC have on the political system, security, and quality of democracy in Ukraine?
