France, as well as other G7 countries, is disappointed with the current state of the fight against corruption in Ukraine. This was stated by French Ambassador to Ukraine Etienne de Poncins, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

"I have to emphasize my frustration. And it is not just my frustration, it is not France's frustration - it's the frustration of G7 countries. I think you are following our tweets. Of course, we are disappointed, especially when it comes to the conflict over the Constitutional Court. It is also obvious that we consider the resolution of October 27, 2020, a serious obstacle to Ukraine's fight against corruption, as some important aspects of the legislation are under threat," said de Poncins.
