In a blunt resolution approved Wednesday by 526 European Parliament members – three quarters of the total – the Euro Parliament criticizes Ukraine for weak progress on cleaning up the courts, for putting political pressure on the Central bank, for slow progress on bringing power plants up to EU standards, for profiteering attempts during the coronavirus attempts and for making “no visible” progress “in the de-oligarchisation of the country.” On reports of “attempts to purchase medical equipment at a disproportionately high price in the midst of a pandemic,” the parliamentarians “urge Ukraine to combat the pervasive nepotism and corruption that persist in its health sector, and especially in the Ministry of Health.”
