PACE President welcomes Ukrainian Minister of Justice

The PACE President today held talks with the Ukrainian Minister of Justice Pavlo Petrenko, thanking him for having taken the time to follow the urgent debate on “threats to the functioning of democratic institutions in Ukraine” given that he holds a key office for carrying out reform in Ukraine.

“With the Resolution adopted yesterday, we, as the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, aimed at giving political impetus to the action of the whole of the Council of Europe vis-à-vis Ukraine. The priorities are well known: they include reform in the constitutional sphere, electoral reform, devolution, reform of the justice system and the fight against corruption,” she said.
