Victor Yushchenko has sent a letter to Prosecutor General Oleksandr Medvedko with a demand to more effectively compel the observance of and obedience to anti-corruption laws, President's press office reported.

The President said Ukraine’s law enforcement agencies failed to fight corruption effectively, catching mostly petty offenders representing local governments or self-governments, which “discredits the work of the law enforcement agencies.” Those officials are rarely punished and continue to perform their official duties despite criminal charges, and their impunity creates conditions for committing new corruption offences, he said.

Yushchenko believes the negligence of the country’s law enforcement agencies makes corruption in Ukraine thrive, posing a threat to national security and the stability of democratic institutions.

He asked Medvedko to personally inform him about results of the inspection.
