Ukraine, Finland to cooperate in police reform in Ukraine
Interior Ministers signed the statement in Kyiv on Thursday
The reform of Ukrainian police is being carried out in tough conditions, in the state of war, said Ukraine’s Interior Minister Arsen Avakov. During the visit of Finnish delegation, he noted that Finnish government systematically supports Ukraine and its European aspirations. “The support of our Finnish counterparts is quite important, despite the fact that the conditions of providing public security in these countries strongly differ”, Avakov said.
The sides signed the agreement on cooperation of their respective Ministries of Interior. Upon the signature, Finnish Interior Minister Petteri Orpo marked that Finland is ready to support Ukraine on its way to the EU integration, in particular, in reforming the system of law enforcement agencies. “We’re very satisfied to have begun cooperation with Ukrainian experts. We’re ready to offer cooperation in providing domestic security and border control”, he said.
Representative of the Finnish police Kauko Aaltomaa added that in his country, the process of police reform started immediately after the WWII. Moreover, it continues even now: for the last six year, three reforms took place. The Finnish delegation added that the similar reforms in the Ukrainian police will take many years as well.
