The European Council established a mission to assist Ukraine in matters of national security (EUAM Ukraine), which will be headed by Kálmán Mizsei.

For an announced period of 2 years, but possibly extending to 10, he will advise and oversee the Ukrainian government to reform its police and army forces.

Kálmán Mizsei is a Hungarian banker who specializes in privatization processes. He held key positions at the Institute for East West Security Studies in New York (1992-1995) (which currently publishes a daily newsletter on Ukraine), and at the AIG Global Investment Group (1997-2001). He became Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations and served as UNDP Regional Director for Europe and the CIS (2001-2006), then as special representative of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova (2007-2011).

He is close to George Soros.
