President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said there's a need to reboot the work of the Anti-Corruption Council because one of the main priorities is combating corruption, as 112 Ukraine reported.

Zelensky noted that the Anti-Corruption Council might become an “important communication platform for all anti-monopoly bodies”.

“Over the last three years, the Anti-Corruption Council has not worked; today, we relaunch it. We hope that it will become the important communication platform for all anti-corruption bodies, for public, business, experts, for all of us, for analytics,” Zelensky said.

He also noted that there are some achievements on the way of overcoming corruption. During the last two months, 16 draft laws on anti-corruption activity were filed to the Verkhovna Rada. The cooperation between the anti-corruption bureau and anti-corruption bodies of foreign states was unblocked. Moreover, the declaration for the anti-corruption activists was canceled and preparation to the launch of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court continue.

“The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court is prepared for the complete launch; we help in this direction. We found a premise for it and submitted the draft law on the improvement of the activity of the Anti-Corruption Court to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for urgent consideration,” Zelensky said.
