Fight against corruption in Ukraine heads in the right direction, so now it is necessary to strengthen the effectiveness of newly created bodies and establish the anti-corruption court as soon as possible.

Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli said this at the forum devoted to priorities of the reform process in Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Fight against corruption in Ukraine heads in the right direction. The government has implemented new laws and established new institutions such as the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine. Now we have to make sure they are effective and can work without obstacles, which means that their work is treated with respect," Mingarelli said.

He added that the anti-corruption court should be established in Ukraine as soon as possible and its judges should be elected pursuant to fair and transparent procedure.
