Deutsche Welle: the US and Europe should stop “ceremony” with Ukraine - the Donbas conflict can no longer serve as an excuse for its lack of reform

Specifically, Biden urged Kiev “to eradicate the cancer of corruption” in the country and urged the responsible parliamentary deputies that block implementation of certain reforms in the country.

This was also discussed at the meeting of the Association of Ukraine and the EU in Brussels. On the one hand, the Europeans Ukraine demonstrated its future prospects in the European Union. However, in terms of Johan, the promises made by Europeans Ukraine - it is only “advance praise”: Kiev does not fulfill the requirements of the West and too slow implementing a program of reforms.

In particular, Deutsche Welle journalist noted that neither the Ukrainian government, neither the president nor parliament and failed to take real measures to combat corruption in the country.
