The plan will promote democracy in Ukraine, Grishchenko said. “We now have a new action plan of the Council of Europe for Ukraine. I am confident that this plan will help strengthen democratic principles in this country,” he said.
In turn, Jagland said that bigger respect for democratic freedoms and rights displayed by the Ukrainian authorities and public was a key achievement of Ukraine within its membership in the Council of Europe. He also said that the new plan stipulated 51 projects and three strategic areas, such as the promotion of human rights, the strengthening of the judiciary and the spread of information about the Convention on Human Rights and case law in Ukraine.
