It is of unparalleled importance that Ukraine succeeds in moving forward on issues of the rule of law and a fair trial. After all, we are at the equator of this complex and extremely large-scale reform ", the Minister noted.

    According to Pavlo Petrenko, it is very important not to come under influence of pre-election populism and not to halt this reform. He emphasized that the new Supreme Court has already been formed due to its efficient work the court  will be the new face of the judicial system.

    The Ministry of Justice will continue its work aimed at ensuring a fruitful dialogue between business circles and  law enforcement agencies. Last year, a number of laws were adopted under the conditional name # ‘Stop Masks Show’, the norms of which are already applied.

    The Minister of Justice stressed that essential component  of protecting business rights is the guarantee of inviolability of property.
