reforms in the economy and social domain. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr
Groysman stressed during a meeting with Acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development

paramount", stressed the Prime Minister.
that it’s rather challenging to bring about necessary change amid the hostilities
in Donbas and a hybrid war in the economy and the information sector. "Though,

Minister. “Our prime concern is a pension reform we have agreed with the IMF
and the World Bank. The next on the agenda is privatization. In a few weeks we
are going to present an upgraded system [of sale of state-owned assets – ed.]. A sensitive but not least urgent direction is a land
reform. Here we have also found the format in what to engage on discussion. In
parallel, we are working on a medical reform and that of education. These are
five topmost reforms at the moment."
