Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal met with Věra Jourová, Vice-President of the European Commission for Values and Transparency, who is on a working visit to Kyiv.
"Despite the full-scale war, Ukraine continues to implement the reforms necessary for integration into the European Union. In the near future, we are determined to complete the implementation of the legislative steps set out in the European Commission's report as part of the Enlargement Package," Denys Shmyhal emphasized.
The Prime Minister noted that the decision to open negotiations with Ukraine on accession to the EU was crucial, particularly in the context of rebuilding our country.
The parties raised a separate issue of the aggressor's responsibility for crimes in Ukraine.
"We look forward to our further effective work with the EU to develop a mechanism for the confiscation of frozen russian assets. The principle of "russia will pay" should be implemented next year," said Denys Shmyhal and emphasized the need to establish a special tribunal to bring the leadership of the russian federation to justice.
The Prime Minister emphasized that Ukraine appreciated the high level of support from the European Commission and was determined to deepen bilateral cooperation.
