    Reforms  being implemented in Ukraine  stipulate  not only for amendments to the  legislation or introduction of new rules, but also changing mindsets and shift from obsolete norms which jeopardize development. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman made this statement in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Maariv.

    The Head of Government stressed that the transformations  are taking place in every sphere - from primary school, where new standards are to be introduced this year, to privatization, which also starts under the new legislation elaborated  in accordance with the principles of  English law.

    "Taking into account the number of reforms that we kicked off since the 2014 Revolution of Dignity, in fact it means that today we are  building a new country.  We have a beautiful and multicultural country with a population of 45 million that has demonstrated to the whole world its commitment to democracy and European integration. I am proud of our people - a talented youth, our industrialists, I pay my respect to the elderly generation. We from month to month see a growing tendency of export of our services, first of all,  IT-direction. Every week on my page in social network I talk about the inventions of our young scientists. Ukrainian IT pros are  already well known in the world as they engaged in many world startups and technological innovations. It really inspires", the Head of Government claimed.

     Volodymyr Groysman added that the country like never before is open to the world and the world is opening Ukraine, which is doomed to success.

    "Today the state is undergoing a revolutionary stage in the development – a new Ukraine is being built. After signing an Association Agreement with the European Union and obtaining a visa-free regime, Ukraine is approaching the European Union every day. Cooperation with our North Atlantic Alliance partners is becoming closer,the Prime Minister said. - And  the point is not only to use efficiently the potential we have. The point is to change our ways of thinking, to retrofit the outdated norms and rules, to establish the rule of law and to have  zero tolerance for corruption at all levels. This is a challenging and hard path . It takes more than one year. But we chose this way, and every step is a move in the right direction".
