"Today Ukraine got another victory - the president of Ukraine signed the amendments to the law on prosecutor's office, adopted a week ago, which give us an opportunity to really launch the prosecutor's office reform: open its doors to young, motivated, honest Ukrainians. A new approach to recruitment through open and transparent competition will make it possible for them to succeed, to implement qualitative changes throughout the entire system," he wrote.

"Once again I thank all the MPs who voted for these changes and gave us a chance to reform the prosecutor's office. Signing the amendments to the law, the president reiterated his clear position - full support of self-purification of the prosecutor's office and zero tolerance to corruption within the entire system," Sakvarelidze said.
