She said this in an interview with The Right to Power program, the Ukrayinska Pravda online newspaper reports.

"I insist on the need to move forward in the establishment of the Anti-Corruption Court. Poroshenko's bill has been already registered in the Verkhovna Rada. Now it is necessary to put it on the agenda and take into account the recommendations of the Venice Commission," Yovanovitch stressed.
