The Law on the High Anti-Corruption Court, voted for by the Verkhovna Rada in the first reading, was adopted with some violations both of a procedural nature and in essence. In particular, according to the law, the admission of judges to the High Anti-Corruption Court will be made under the supervision of the Presidential Administration, which will further put the judiciary under the influence of the President of Ukraine. Another part of the judicial branch will be placed under the control of the President. Nothing prevents them from fighting corruption under the existing law enforcement framework, without creating additional judicial authorities. Nevertheless, the fight against corruption does not happen, but is rather imitated.
