EU comments on Groysman’s appointment: Momentum must be seized now

The European Union has welcomed the formation of a new government in Ukraine and urged carrying out fundamental reforms in this extremely important for the state time.

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and European Commissioner Johannes Hahn said this in a joint statement, which was released on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Today's appointment of a new government in Ukraine, headed by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, is a crucial development at a time when new momentum in the country is badly needed," Mogherini and Hahn said.

They also noted continuous efforts in implementing reforms in Ukraine, starting from 2014.

"The momentum offered with the appointment of the new prime minister and government must be seized now," they said.

According to the officials, EU will continue to support Ukraine, in particular by rendering financial and technical assistance on Ukraine’s way of carrying out key reforms, modernization and the fight against corruption.

The officials also said that the EU expects the new Ukrainian government will ensure the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
