The European Commission for Democracy through Law believes that since the victory of Euromaidan movement and the 2014 Revolution of Dignity, the level of political corruption in Ukraine has decreased. However, the corruption in the judiciary system remains up-to-date. The commission’s leader Gianni Buquicchio said this as quoted by Ukrainski Novyny news agency.   

‘Unfortunately, corruption remains a destabilizing factor for the judicial system’, he said.

Buquicchio also praised the Ukrainian parliament for imposing constitutional changes regarding the justice, the liqudation of supreme special courts, and creation of the Supreme Law Council instead of the Supreme Justice Council.
