European Council President Charles Michel intends to ask Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky about the current state of rule of law in Ukraine during tete-a-tete talks at the EU summit in Brussels. This was reported by several sources of the EU institutions, Yevropeiska Pravda reports.

"You know that the memorandum on macro-financial assistance envisages changes to the legislation on judicial reform in accordance with the recommendations of the Venice Commission. We are also going to talk about the State Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). The SBU, like any other intelligence service, should not have the power to investigate, and this creates a risk of corruption,” the statement said.

As we reported earlier, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine plans to hold the Crimean summit with the participation of the Russian side.
