Hugues Mingarelli, Head of EU representation to Ukraine, states that the reforms are not implemented fast enough as this process faces active resistance, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"A struggle between those who try to preserve the status quo and reformers is always happening during the transition period. We can see such a struggle in Ukraine, but it is more active than in other countries with the transition process. Ukraine is one of the largest countries of the regions, so those people who could not form their interests contrary to the interests of the country over 25 years, are struggling to suspend or postpone the reforming process. Therefore, nobody should be surprised that the reforming process is not that fast and linear," he stated.

At the same time, the Ambassador stressed that the EU supports the reformers.  

"Obviously the EU is with the reformers. Especially when it’s about reforming the judicial system. We will continue spending a lot of time, efforts, and resources to support you in this fight for the judicial system," the diplomat noted.
