UWC calls on new Ukrainian Government to maintain reform trajectory
With the dismissal of Government of Ukraine and removal of the Prosecutor General by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy just half a year after taking office, the Ukrainian World Congress calls upon newly appointed Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and his new government to maintain a pro-reform Euro Atlantic trajectory.
UWC maintains that the interests of Ukraine and its people remain paramount. Trust in government, independence of the judicial system and sanctity of democratic institutions are key to Ukraine’s success. Ukraine risks losing the support of international allies if its political leadership fails to uphold the rule of law, engages in politically motivated justice or fails to fully implement necessary democratic and economic reforms.
“The Ukrainian World Congress is committed to strengthening Ukraine as a successful democratic European state. We stand with the people of Ukraine as they defend their territorial integrity and sovereignty amid Russia’s continued military, political and economic aggression. It is vital that both Ukraine’s elected and appointed government leaders continue on a positive reform trajectory while upholding the rule of law, respecting human rights and avoiding politically motivated justice” – stated Paul Grod, UWC President.
The UWC will be monitoring their actions to ensure the rule of law is upheld and the Euro Atlantic vector continues to make progress in Ukraine.
