US State Department hopes Ukraine will punish corrupt officials

According to Ricker, a large number of malign forces can be observed in Ukraine, who “seek to undermine reforms not only guided by their own interests, but also in the service of certain political forces”.

“We welcome the steps the Ukrainian government has taken this year to implement restrictive measures against corrupt individuals. And we acknowledge the work of Ukrainian civil society in exposing corruption. We hope to see further action by the Ukrainian government, including in court, to bring these individuals to justice in the coming months and years”, –  said Ricoeur at the “Democracy in Action” conference in Kiev.
