On October 27, 2017 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the European Union negotiated two cooperation agreements aimed at supporting the adoption of reforms in Ukraine. The documents were signed by Stepan Kubiv, the First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine, and Peter Wagner, the Head of Support Group for Ukraine at European Commission.
The Agreement on financing the Technical Cooperation Program of 2017 is aimed at facilitating the Ukrainian government to adhere to the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area. The Agreement entails financial aid provision for the approximation of the Ukrainian legislation to the European norms as well as drafting and implementation of reforms.
Within the framework of the Program are such priority spheres as public administration, agricultural sector, land reform, private sector support, health care, culture, and transportation.
The budget of the Program is almost EUR 38,1 million.
According to the Agreement on financing the program “Support to Rule of Law Reforms in Ukraine (PRAVO)”, the European Commission will allocate EUR 52,5 million for the implementation of judicial reform and law-enforcement bodies reform, particularly for the support of the National Police of Ukraine.
