The Vice-President of the European Commission, Věra Jourová, believes that an effective anti-corruption system is being formed in Ukraine, as the country seeks to start negotiations on EU membership, Bloomberg writes.
"Ukraine is doing everything to strengthen the fight against corruption," Jourová said during a press briefing in Kyiv after meetings with the prime minister, the justice minister, and the heads of the country's anti-graft institutions.
Cases of corruption are becoming more visible as Ukraine is getting better at uncovering them, she noted.
The European official added that she was "impressed" with Kyiv's efforts, and emphasized that she would convey this message to Brussels and EU member states when they discuss the start of negotiations with Ukraine on future EU membership.
On X (formerly Twitter), she wrote that the European Commission recommends that Ukraine work on four priorities until March 2024:
→ regulation of lobbying;
→ minorities' rights.
