Zelensky: quality reforms must make people “want to live in Ukraine”

Volodymyr Zelensky chaired the first meeting of the National Council of Reforms, attended by Cabinet and Parliament leadership.

Opening the meeting, the Head of State assessed the quality and dynamics of implementation of changes in Ukraine, his office reported.

According to him, any reform can only be deemed successful if it yields result.

“Any reform is first and foremost about result. It’s when you walk down the street and feel safe. When you come home and you have money in your pocket, that is, you make money. That is why to me, reforms are about an opportunity,” Zelensky said.

The Head of State stressed the need for judicial reform, as there is a great demand for justice and security in Ukraine. In addition, it is critical to create an effective healthcare system. The president also stressed the need for affordable loans for the population, reforming the tax system, accelerating privatization, and noted progress in the field of digitization and infrastructure, in particular in the implementation of the Great Construction project.

“Reforms are also about responsibility. Someone has to bear responsibility and ensure the results. Therefore, I think this is the main task for the National Council of Reforms. To do everything to make us all want to live in Ukraine,” Volodymyr Zelensky summed up.

    The responsibility for reforms in Ukraine is not some Council of Reforms, but you. Passing the buck does not work, you are the so called leader of Ukraine, you need to start acting like it. First by removing all the trash that crawled it’s way back into Ukraine.

    Combating corruption effectively would be a good start. Getting rid of your Ruskie friendship and Ruskie ass-spelunkers would be another. And, passing some laws that protect the working class would also be a good thing. But, I doubt very much that the television clown has the brains or the gonads to accomplish these things. Lame lip service will be all that he can muster.

  • He is absolutely correct.
    The question is how to achieve this?
    A reasonable person may suggest NOT replacing basically honest and sincere reformers with people who were associated with the corrupt Party of Regions.
    Another idea would be to not drag your feet on clear and obvious reform requirements agreed to by the IMF.
    Finally realize that peace in Donbas is the peace of slavery.
