Statements by the HR/VP

The adoption in the final reading of constitutional amendments related to the judiciary by the Verkhovna Rada in Ukraine is a crucial step towards strengthening the judiciary, improving its efficiency, safeguarding its independence and impartiality, and combating corruption.

We look forward to the implementation of a comprehensive reform of the judiciary enabled by today's vote. In this context, the EU remains committed to support the Ukrainian authorities in delivering concrete results swiftly.

We hope today's vote will create momentum for the adoption in the final reading of the pending constitutional amendments related to decentralisation and other important reforms.
