EU Ambassador Hugues Mingarelli expressed the opinion that the Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine should be created before the presidential elections. He said this on Monday at the meeting with people's deputies, members of the Interfactional Union "Eurooptimists."

"The Anti-Corruption court is needed before the elections, and there is also a need to start implementing the privatization reform and others," the EU ambassador said.

Mingarelli noted that Ukraine, unlike some countries of the former USSR, has been changing over the past few years, but changes are moving with difficulties. At the same time, authorities and society should understand that in order to fight corruption, the country should define a "red line" - such a line exists in many countries. This line will be determined by creation of the Anti-Corruption Court.
