Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak met with the Ambassadors of the G7 and the European Union to Ukraine.
At the beginning of the conversation, he informed foreign diplomats about the process of peaceful settlement in Donbas and the return of the temporarily occupied territories, as well as about tensions around Ukraine's state borders.
Andriy Yermak thanked international partners for their support and assistance to our country at various levels given this situation and the possibility of escalation on the part of Russia.
In the context of the negotiation process on Donbas, the Head of the Office of the President and the Ambassadors of the G7 and the EU exchanged views on the agenda of the Trilateral Contact Group and Ukraine's initiatives on this platform.
Andriy Yermak spoke about the domestic political processes in our country. He stressed that there are external and internal forces that are interested in destabilizing the situation. The Head of the President's Office noted that there is also opposition to reforms from the old system.
"I would like to note that this law (the law on limiting the influence of oligarchs - ed.) is not directed against any individual. Its goal is to exclude opportunities for oligarchic business to influence political processes, "buy" politicians and manipulate the media. At the same time, no one will take anything from anyone or violate anyone's rights," he said.
During the conversation, the parties also raised the issue of adopting a law on improving the organizational and legal framework of the Security Service of Ukraine, holding a competition to elect the Head of the Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) and the course of the judicial reform, on which significant progress has been made.
Andriy Yermak assured that the President is interested in bringing these processes to the results expected by Ukrainian society and Ukraine's foreign partners.
