The European Commission has been tracking the course of events involving the SAP (Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office) and NABU (National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine). These contradictions do not make any good impression on Brussels; Peter Wagner, the Head of the Support Group for Ukraine at European Commission. 

'We're aware of the events in Kyiv. We follow the messages, although analyzing and deciding what to do is none of our business... That, of course, does not come across as a good thing, when those supposed to fight the corruption actually fight each other much more,' he said.

Wagner added that in his opinion, Ukraine still shows 'more progress' in reforms over the last three years than over the previous 20. According to him, the list of areas where Ukraine proceeds successfully is'very long'. 

'Despite the fact that a lot is done already, there's still a lot of work is yet to be done. Besides, it is crucial to respond to where we are now and how it goes next. There's no feeling that things are not going to change', he said.
