Politician says European-style reforms to degrade Ukraine’s economyWorld January 23, 18:16
KIEV, December 29. /TASS/. Corruption is still the biggest factor that keeps European investors off Ukraine, Sweden’s Ambassador to Ukraine Andreas von Beckerath told Ukraine’s television channel 5 on Tuesday.
He said the biggest disappointment in terms of reforms in Ukraine was the lack of any progress in countering corruption. The bulk of Swedish companies, in his words, have noticed no considerable changes in this sphere. So, he noted, the most daring challenge for the Ukrainian authorities was to speed up reforms. Anti-corruption efforts were directly linked with the judicial system, he added.
