Yanukovych demands reforms from government

A day after returning home from the EU-Ukraine summit in Brussels, President Viktor Yanukovych instructed his government to ensure that the Association Agreement gets signed later this year at a general meeting he called on February 27.

He also called on the business climate to be improved and demanded a clamp down on corruption.

“I demand that the government secure the certain implementation of agreements that were reached with the European Council and European Commission. We have to make all effort to ensure the signing of the Association agreement during the Eastern partnership summit,” Yanukovych told a room full of officials that included ministers, regional governors, and the parliamentary speaker.
