Ukraine Today sits with Dmytro Shymkiv, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, to discuss the progress of reforms being implemented in Ukraine.

"If you look at anti-corruption - we have established the necessary institutions, we have the national anti-corruption bureau, we have detectives who are going through the training and should be fully operational in October," said Shymkiv, according to Ukraine Today.

"We expect to have an anti-corruption prosecutor in November, so this will get to the court. We have established the prevention mechanism, with a special commission. We have cases with arrest of corrupt individuals. We need to get more of this to the court. Anti-corruption is a top priority for us," the official said.
