"I would not say that the war prevents reforms, it is a much more complex definition. No one has the right to stop. Indeed, there are too many challenges, too many problems, too many obstacles. On the other hand, we have pulled ourselves together and we are moving forward... We do our job and we will keep doing our job, despite all the difficulties, because this work is not just a work on reforms, but on preserving the state of Ukraine, this is the work on the struggle for our independence and our future," he said.
