The EU will provide macrofinancial assistance for Ukraine in the amount of 1.2 billion Euros, if it lives up to a number of requirements. Věra Jourová, the Vice President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency said so during the online discussion on June 23. Yevropeiska Pravda quoted her as saying.

"And the EU will include the conditions regarding the supremacy of law and anti-corruption reform. It is crucial for Ukraine to remain on the path of reforms, especially those concerning the supremacy of law and anti-corruption. The coronavirus crisis should not justify the digression from those results already achieved, or their reversal in the interests of oligarchs", Jourova said.
