“Judicial – the main said reform, so that of all the reform that was needed for Ukraine to strengthen to trade with other countries, Ukraine to realize its Euro-Atlantic intentions,” – Quinn.
Asked whether Ukraine’s failure to reform Ukraine could result in a denial of international aid, Quinborough said: “The United States has always supported Ukraine in its pursuit of transparency, corruption and corruption with external collateral. Therefore, we do not impose such conditions.”
But, according to the US representative, Ukraine “will have to get better” to receive investment and “join NATO and the EU.”
“We can’t force American companies to invest here until they feel the security and comfort of the judiciary. And when the US Chamber conducts surveys, the №1 barrier that applies to each of them, including the latter, is free and independent justice. “Quinn said.”
Asked what her country’s reaction would be to the failure of judicial reform in Ukraine, the British ambassador said: “The United Kingdom is an ally of Ukraine … If these reforms fail to materialize, it will stop investment. I agree with Christina that this is it will also be a problem for Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations. But for the allies, everything will be as it was before. We continue to look for opportunities to encourage and help where we can. “
