representative of the executive authorities: “Only the dialogue with society can provide us
with the opportunity to save the unity of Ukraine and could enable us to save
the country. Therefore, I emphasize that all authorities should hold their
meetings publicly and live. The representatives of all authorities, including
those sitting here, have to give every month a public report on the
activities of its government agency.”
I stress and demand that all telephone calls as well as personal meetings
with representatives of political forces, with acting MPs and representatives
of business entities have to be fixed in a separate register and have to be
published on the first media request,” he added.
continued: “either in case the representatives of business entities, business
elite or representatives of some political forces try to put pressure on the
Government representatives for lobbying personnel matters, or their own
business interests or in case they interfere in the public authorities’
activity, I do request the heads of those authorities, including the current
Ministers, to go public immediately – to communicate both with Ukrainian and
foreign media, to inform the representatives of the NGOs as well as our
partners all over the world on such a pressure. I also request to pass this
information immediately to all newly created anti-corruption authorities.
That will make the society well-informed and bring understanding that we are
ready to be as transparent as possible”.
will not allow any pressure, and under no circumstances will fall for those
attempts – including by representatives of political forces of our ‘partner’
from North here – to loosen and to obstacle the opportunity for normal
activity of the Government of Ukraine and the Ukrainian authorities in
general”, emphasized Yuriy Stets.

this beautiful country”: “I do not want to leave my work half done.”
emphasized: “Only this year we succeeded in making it not possible to steal

Minister of Infrastructure
of Ukraine Andriy Pivovarsky
announced he would withdraw his resignation on condition all the declared and
the following principles to be fulfilled: “The first principle is a fair salary for
civil servants. We have to create necessary conditions for the fight against
corruption. The civil servants have to receive fair salaries – taking into
account the challenges they face as well as the responsibility they bear.”
continued: “Within the last year, billions of UAH have been saved during the
state procurements: “Ukrzaliznytsia
along with other enterprises of the Ministry of Infrastructure became a sample
area for the ProZorro
system, which was tested during the first half of the year”.
procurements in the state-owned enterprises are to become a norm. There have
to be no exceptions. We have to switch to the new transparent procurement conditions that
would allow us to save huge amounts of money, and thus we will be able to pay
fair salaries not only to civil servants, but also to the heads of the
state-owned enterprises. We have to put this principle into the law ”, stressed Andriy Pyvovarsky.
Minister Natalie Jaresko noted the need to have
political support of the parliamentary coalition: “Last year we have gotten
this support despite permanent resistance and opposition. It has not to be
done this way. It is not normal. We are ready to work further as a team. We
are ready as a team to fight for the future of our country and for the future
of our people. But we do need a real support from the coalition”.
“It has to
become a principle to have irrevocable support of our reforms program, of the
IMF program, including the immediate adoption of all the legislation necessary for transparent
privatization. There should be no political interference into the management change in the top-60 of the state owned
enterprises based on independent nomination committee created at this
Government a year ago,” she said.
Natalie Jaresko also advocates the need of the depolitization of the State Fiscal Service, where we have started a new system of tax
all political forces to save the country, to stay away from the personal
interests, to fight for our future together, and to facilitate the reforms we
have started and are implementing,” the Finance Minister summed up.
