“I am convinced that in the near future Ukrainian Parliament will prepare laws on introducing amendments into regulations of the Verkhovna Rada, so many of the questions that have been developed, so we implemented them and the Ukrainian Parliament worked according to European standards. Our communication with European politicians show one obvious thing that the Ukrainian (European – ed.) partners want to see from Ukrainian authorities to real reforms and actions, not their imitation. The same require and Ukrainian citizens, and the crisis. Because power often mimics the words of the reform of the reform, and actually a significant reduction (levels) of human life, deterioration of the investment climate, lowering of social standards”, – said Lyashko.

I would like to ask the European Commission and the European Parliament to understand that if there is a negative signal in question “bezveze”, it will be perceived very negatively inside Ukraine. And this is the factor that may slow down the pace of reform. Providing “bezveze” is a stimulus for reform and revitalization,” said Lyashko.
