Gustav Gressel

ECFR, August 2019, pp. 31


+ Despite Ukrainian’s deep unhappiness with the corruption and inefficiency of the judiciary and security bodies, the Poroshenko administration failed to reform these services.

+ Political interference and personal enrichment have long been part of thye practice of these services, overshadowing the strong work they are often capable of and holding back reformist elements.

+ The office of the procecutor general and the Ukrainian Security Service need particular attention, but merely passing new laws will not be enough: replacing icumbent high- level officials should be an early step.

+ The EU, US, and NATO have worked effectively together on encouraging reform in Ukraine, but they must now ensure that these services remain high in the minds of the Zelensky administration and Rada members.
