President to the judges of the new Supreme Court: Remember the price Ukraine paid for an independent and fair court

President Petro Poroshenko took part in the solemn ceremony of taking oath by the judges of the new Supreme Court and congratulated the newly appointed judges.

“A huge request from all of us - return faith in justice to people. Help them find the truth. And please always remember the price paid by Ukraine for an independent and fair court, for your ability to work there,” Petro Poroshenko addressed the judges.

"It is a great honor for each of you - to make the final decision in the name of Ukraine. And when you make this decision in the name of Ukraine, please think about the person and his rights, the independence of the court and the justice that you carry. About honesty and integrity. This is what Ukrainian society demands from you," the President emphasized, adding that this is what he wanted when starting a judicial reform and deliberately limiting his rights.

“Remember that the key value is a person. Remember that during the war, society and the state must be guided by the power of law, not by the power of force,” the President said.
