The Council of Europe will launch a three-year action plan in Kyiv on September 16 to support Ukraine's European agenda for reform in the areas of human rights, the rule of law and democracy, the council said in a statement on Monday, Interfax-Ukraine reported.

Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryschenko will open the conference.

"The positive results of ambitious reforms will ultimately benefit the citizens of Ukraine, the country's institutions, and society as a whole," they said ahead of the opening.

The new plan will cost EUR 22 million to implement. It will focus on the reform of the judiciary, the fight against corruption and money laundering, freedom of expression, local democracy, free and fair elections and on strengthening social security.
