Ukraine showed tremendous progress on the way of systematic reforms – first of all, constitutional changes in the judiciary system and the anti-corruption legal framework. These efforts should be extended, and reforms continued, reads the joint statement signed by Embassies of the U.S., the EU and Canada. It was released through the press service of EU office in Ukraine on December 9, the International Day of fighting corruption.
The foreign authorities marked Ukraine’s successful steps in creating anti-corruption agencies and implementing e-declaration systems. The embassies said they’d expect Ukraine to maintain independent actions and adequate supply for the National Anti-Corruption Bureau, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office and the National Agency to Prevent Corruption. The embassies also added they support the initiative to create the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court. ‘The independent secletion of judges will be crucial,’ the statement said.
