President of Council of Europe Charles Michel reminded Ukraine of judicial reform and the fight against corruption. According to him, these steps are important for obtaining macro-financial assistance. Michel stated this during the 'Ukraine 30' forum.

"Much needs to be done for the rule of law, judicial reform, and the fight against corruption. Ukrainian citizens have the right to a judiciary that respects the rule of law, applies it and fight for the best interests and demonstrate that there is no impunity for crime," Michel said.

He added that Ukraine is committed to the fight against corruption and comprehensive judicial reform under the terms of the Association Agreement with the EU. He noted that these steps are important for obtaining macro-financial assistance.
