“Petro Poroshenko and Christine Lagarde coordinated approaches as regards the establishment of the anti-corruption court in Ukraine, taking into account the relevant initiative of the President, as well as ensuring the effective functioning of anticorruption institutions,” the statement reads.
Christine Lagarde also assured that the IMF supports the efforts of the Ukrainian authorities in the fight against corruption.
Moreover, the parties called on Ukrainian MPs to get united in support the draft law on the creation of the court and consider it by the year’s end.
As we reported earlier, President Poroshenko insisted that the MPs suggest a new version of the draft law on the anti-corruption court, as the Venice Commission didn’t approve of the previous one. However, the progress has been slow, so Poroshenko will submit his version of the draft law if the MPs fail to do so by the end of this week.
