Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said his country is fighting a war on two fronts at the same time – one to counter military aggression and restore its territorial integrity, and the other to implement difficult and complex reforms.

Addressing PACE today in Strasbourg, he hailed his country’s “considerable progress” on the path of internal transformation and pledged that it would continue to bring its laws, practices and institutions into line with Council of Europe standards. He thanked the Assembly and the Council of Europe for their active support for reform in Ukraine.

He outlined an “unprecedented” series of steps to counter corruption, which had already brought positive results, and said renewing trust in the judiciary was his next strategic priority – including the creation of a special Anti-Corruption Court, which should be free of political influence.
