Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Johannes Hahn: Ukraine Remains a Top Priority for EU

The decisions which are taken today on future relations between the EU and Ukraine will impact above all on the rising generation, Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Johannes Hahn has told students at the Ukrainian Catholic University.

During his speech, he noted that a number of crucial reforms have already been initiated in Ukraine with the strong support of the EU to undertake these deep reforms. “Ukraine remains a top priority for us,” underlined Hahn.

Ukraine is at the beginning of a challenging road, he said, adding that the country needs to take three important steps for its own benefit. “First put in place a truly independent judiciary and a truly functioning administration; Second foster a new political culture where corruption cannot flourish; Third decentralise power and wealth so that the whole country benefits from a new order,” he said.
