As the Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, I will above all pay attention to the draft laws concerning security and defense area. Our country is at war with Russian occupants, and the area of military, defense and security was and still is the key priority to me.
Another important issue is reformation of the judiciary system. We can’t overcome corruption if we do not reform the judiciary, which is perhaps one of the most corrupted areas in the Ukrainian society.
I’m pretty sure we have to implement the new modes of work of the Parliament. One of the ideas is to organize field meetings of the Verkhovna Rada. We will be able to work not only in Kyiv, but also in Mariupol, Zaporizhya, Kharkiv, Lviv et cetera. We need it for better understanding of local problems. It’s obvious that general changes and improvements in the work of the Parliament are in line with reforms in its structure.
We’ll keep on reforming the Parliament; it is a large-scale initiative started by Volodymyr Greusman (previous Speaker and current Head of the Ukrainian government). We’ve got many ideas, and quite soon we’ll see first results in terms of openness, transparency and new system of management in the Parliament.
