Ukrainian police reform most significant in transformation of law enforcement agencies – Madison
Police reform has become the most significant in the process of transformation of law enforcement agencies in Ukraine, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Kirsten Madison has said.
She said at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday after a meeting with Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Artem Sytnyk that police reform is one of the most striking elements of what modern Ukraine might look like. Ukrainian patrol police, the KORD special forces unit, and the State Border Guard Service are implementing advanced western standards and practices in their work, Madison said.
According to her, civil society in Ukraine is also actively promoting anti-corruption reforms.
NABU detectives and SAPO prosecutors are actively working to investigate high-profile corruption crimes of high-ranking Ukrainian officials, she said. The United States fully supports them in their difficult work, Madison added.
