This was said in a joint statement following the 22nd EU-Ukraine Summit held on October 6, 2020.
“We welcomed the launch of the work of the High Anti-Corruption Court. We agreed on the importance of accelerating and reinforcing reform efforts, in particular on the judiciary (including reforming the High Council of Justice and the independent recruitment of judges with integrity) and in the fight against corruption, ensuring strong and independent anti-corruption institutions. We welcomed the renewed commitment of Ukraine to fight the influence of vested interests (“de-oligarchisation”). In this regard, we underlined the need to further strengthen media pluralism in Ukraine,” reads the document.
As reported by Ukrinform, on the eve of the EU-Ukraine Summit, some MEPs expressed concern over the state of the fight against corruption in Ukraine and called for its strengthening as a prerequisite for sustainable democratic and economic development.
