Statement by Chargé d’Affaires Bruce Donahue on Ukraine’s National Police Law

The Law on National Police signed by President Poroshenko is a significant step forward in strengthening policing and rule of law in Ukraine.  We commend the Government, Rada and people of Ukraine on passing this landmark piece of reform legislation, and the many international and civil society partners whose contributions were critical to developing and refining the new law.  The United States will remain a steadfast partner as Ukraine works to implement the Law on National Police and to build the fair, professional law enforcement agencies, free of corruption, that the people of Ukraine want and deserve.
