Ukrainian govt starts working on general reform plan

MOSCOW. Oct 3 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian government is beginning to draw up a general plan of reforms for the period up to 2027, Prime Minister Denis Shmygal said on Tuesday.

"We're launching work on a general plan of reforms for the period up to 2027 today. We will combine initiatives by our partners and other proposals in a single roadmap. The plan will embrace all spheres affecting government institutions, the economy, and interactions with civil society," Ukrainian media quoted Shmygal as saying at a government meeting.

Ukraine has received a number of documents outlining proposed reforms from its partners, including the European Union's seven recommendations and the International Monetary Fund's list of structural benchmarks, he said.

"For our part, at Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky's initiative, we have drawn up a concept for strengthening the resilience of democracy and have handed it to our allies. Now we're beginning to draft a general document," he said.
