Foreign Minister of Sweden Margot Wallström used her microblog in Twitter to urge Ukraine to speed up the reform process. “Five years ago, today, the Maidan protests started in Kyiv. Further accelerated reforms would be the best way to honor those who died in pursuit of a better Ukraine. Sweden will continue to defend Ukraine’s territorial integrity and actively support further reforms,” wrote Wallström.
The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are looking forward to the Verkhovna Rada adopting a bill on November 22 to consolidate state functions on regulation of financial services markets.
On November 22, people's deputies will vote on the Presidential Draft Law “On Amendments to Certain Legal Acts of Ukraine on the Consolidation of the State Regulation of Financial Markets Functions.” This document, which experts and market participants named the “Split Law,” has been waiting for its time in parliament for more than a year. The future of the financial market in Ukraine could well depend on it.
