protecting the National Bank of Ukraine from political pressure; strengthening the rule of law by maintaining the EU-standard anti-corruption institutions put in place; returning the fiscal deficit “to pre-pandemic levels;” building a fully functioning household gas market without price controls; and not going down the path of tax amnesties.
