The Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Law on Administrative Procedure.
Thus, Ukraine joined most EU and OECD countries where there is a unified administrative procedure for all cases of interaction between citizens and businesses with public authorities. This new legislation means a quiet revolution for Ukraine and an improvement for every citizen. It is a step towards a service-oriented state without corruption, officials’ arbitrariness, and excessive bureaucracy. As an example, negative decisions now must be justified, and the citizen can ask for an administrative review instead of having to go to court straight away.
