Poroshenko says fighting corruption is his presidential policy priority
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said that the fight against corruption in Ukraine is a priority of his presidential policy.
"I'm organizing the fight against corruption in Ukraine not because of visa-free travel, not because of this IMF tranche, but because fighting corruption is a priority of my presidential policy. This is me who created independent anti-corruption institutions - NABU and SAPO, which are effectively functioning together with other institutions and deliver the first very promising results," he said during an interactive session of the World Economic Forum in Davos on Friday.
Poroshenko recalled that a number of anti-corruption requirements had been laid in the visa liberalization plan with the European Union.
"We had a full list of what had to be done, and we fully implemented it," he added.
