"The very next day, we eliminated those people out of the selection committee and included those who were proposed by the European Union, including Giovanni Kessler," Poroshenko said.

"Our main task is to introduce a new anti-corruption system from December 1. The system must have the trust of the Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian authorities and our European and American partners," he said.

Earlier, it became known that Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin had amended the composition of the committee for the selection of candidates in Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office.

The November 6 order of the Prosecutor General stipulates that "Head of the Main Investigation Department of the PGO Yuriy Hryshchenko and Deputy Chief of Personnel Department Mykola Sadoviy will be excluded from the composition of the committee for the selection of candidates in Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office."

At the same time, Shokin has appointed Executive Vice President of the Congress of National Communities of Ukraine Yosyf Zisels and Chairman of the All-Ukrainian Union of ATO Veterans Taras Tkalich as members of the committee for the selection of candidates for administrative positions in Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office.

The next meeting of the committee for the selection of candidates for administrative positions in Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office will be held on November 9.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Delegation of the European Union to Ukraine informed the Ukrainian authorities that the financing of the establishment of the country's anti-corruption prosecutor's office would depend on the situation around Viktor Shokin's four prosecutors who were to choose the head of a new agency.
