    The setting up of the Supreme Anticorruption Court in Ukraine, the launch of an effective, high-quality mechanism to curb corruption is number one issue for both Ukrainian Government and the citizens, stressed Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Olexandr Saienko.

    "When we achieved growth the economy has been demonstrating for nine consecutive quarters, when the reforms are on the march, while some of them are already beginning to yield results. However, we have approached the Rubicon, so we must determine the position. Ukraine can not move forward without building real trust both internal trust – on the part of the citizens who are expecting change brough about by the Government and want European values and external trust – on the part of investors, our international partners", he said.

    Olexandr Saienko reminded that in recent years the Government had consistently been engaged in establishment of a system to combat corruption, in pursuing of a public administration reform resulting in upgrading the state apparatus, young people deprived of a corruption "gene" with creative thinking and new approaches to adressing State’s problems come into the Government.

    "But all this content will not yeild a result without a fully shaped effective mechanism for fighting corruption. In this context, the establishment of an independent and fair Anticorruption Court is a critical issue. Without a real fight against corruption there is no real reform. Independent and fair Anticorruption Court is a fundamental question. All the other questions are like curing serious illnesses by magic spell, I do not believe it. We are ready to stand up for what we believe in. And we are ready to fight for that", underscored the Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
