Kestutis Lancinskas joins UT to talk about changes of Ukraine's law enforcement agencies
In December 2014 European Union sent its advisory mission to Ukraine to help implement reforms of law enforcement institutions. The experts announced, changes to the country's police and prosecutor's office would be top priorities for them.
In early 2016 a new head of the advisory mission was appointed. Former chief of police of Vilnius county (Lithuania) Kestutis Lancinskas replaced Kalman Miszei. And today Mr. Lancinskas joined UT to assess the achieved progress of the reforms, and the next steps Ukraine should take.
"Ukraine's traffic police are a "success story", however, I believe the reforms of police in general could be sped up. Still, Ukrainians are really impatient, they want the changes now, or even yesterday, but it's a long process. It took us 10 years to reform the police in Lithuania, and we are still improving. But from what I've seen, Ukraine is headed in the right direction", Lancinskas tells in an interview with Ukraine Today.
Some results of the cooperation between Ukraine and the E.U. were achieved in the Lviv region. To learn more watch the full interview on Ukraine Today.
