The decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on anti-corruption infrastructure is a serious blow, but its negative consequences, including for Ukraine's relations with the West, can still be overcome.
As the correspondent of "European Truth" reports, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated this at a briefing.
"I am convinced that the decision of the Constitutional Court, although a serious blow, does not destroy our interaction with Western partners. But if we fail to overcome the negative consequences of this decision and ensure the proper functioning of anti-corruption infrastructure - then we will have problems," he said.
Dmytro Kuleba noted that although court decisions should be respected in a state governed by the rule of law, yesterday's decision of the Constitutional Court creates a serious problem not only for Ukraine's internal development, but also relations with partners who helped implement anti-corruption reform.
"I want to assure you that both the president and the government are absolutely determined to overcome the consequences of the problem created by the decision of the COP. And soon you will see concrete steps in this direction. The task of the Foreign Ministry is to find optimal ways to solve the problem. "That the anti-corruption infrastructure in Ukraine works properly. Not because someone is asking for it from outside, but because the fight against corruption is in the interests of the Ukrainian people and is necessary for Ukraine's further movement through European integration," he said.
On October 27, it became known that the Constitutional Court had ruled on the constitutional submission of deputies on the constitutionality of a number of provisions of anti-corruption legislation and declared unconstitutional some of its provisions.
The National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption closes the register of electronic declarations for execution of the decision of the Constitutional Court on October 28.
The NAPC noted that two judges of the Constitutional Court participated in the decision illegally.
NABU says that 110 cases will have to be closed due to the decision of the Constitutional Court.
