With its decision, the Committee of Ministers reiterated the need to receive information from the Ukrainian authorities on the measures adopted and/or envisaged to ensure compliance with Article 18 taken together with Article 5 in the Ukrainian justice system, over and above the reform of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
