The President congratulated Jean-Claude Juncker on the first anniversary of the new composition of the European Commission and highly evaluated its constant and comprehensive support for Ukraine. Poroshenko emphasized that the victory of democratic and pro-Ukrainian forces during the local elections of October 25 created an opportunity for acceleration of the process of reforms, first of all in the sphere of anti-corruption policy. The Presidents discussed efforts of the Ukrainian authorities on the creation of institutional and legislative framework for struggle against corruption, which is particularly important in the context of ensuring progress in the issue of introduction of the visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens, as well as the fulfillment of Ukraine's obligations aimed to receive macro-financial assistance from the European Union.
