The US released the following press release on the matter:

The United States commends Ukraine for adopting a law to establish an independent anti-corruption court. We were pleased to see this important piece of legislation passed with broad support in the Verkhovna Rada. With this move, Ukraine took an important step towards achieving the European future its people demanded during the Revolution of Dignity.

We welcome the International Monetary Fund Managing Director's statement. She and President Poroshenko have agreed the Rada should quickly amend the law so the proposed court will be able to hear all cases under its jurisdiction, including existing corruption cases, and pass supplementary legislation to formally establish the court.

These steps will ensure the court is able to help roll back the corruption that threatens Ukraine's national security, prosperity, and democratic development.
