Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has signed a Comprehensive Strategic Plan for reforming law enforcement, developed to implement seven EU recommendations obtained with EU candidacy.

According to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, the Comprehensive Strategic Plan applies to the Prosecutor's Office, the National Police of Ukraine, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, the State Bureau of Investigations, the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine, and the State Customs Service of Ukraine.

The document focuses on the following priorities and directions for reforming law enforcement agencies:

  • The effectiveness and efficiency of law enforcement and the prosecutor's office as an integral part of the security and defence sector.
  • Consistent criminal policy, with a priority on preventing crime.
  • Comprehensive digital transformation.
  • Openness, transparency, accountability, independence, and political neutrality.

The Office of the Prosecutor General has created an interdepartmental working group with international experts and in close cooperation with the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) to develop the plan.

Ukraine's Parliament passed a law on advertising (Ukr) in the first reading, part of the EU recommendations provided to Ukraine along with the EU candidate status.
