Under the gaze of respectable gentlemen with paintings in gilded frames, the representatives of the ministries of foreign Affairs of the European Union, Canada and the United States talking about reform in Ukraine. Here all friends of Ukraine, assured Johnson and for the more relaxed atmosphere encouraged to remove coats, immediately taking advantage of his own proposal. But the friendly tone of the conversation did not exclude criticism of Ukraine. “Corruption must be addressed in all sectors. The work of NAB and other anti-corruption bodies will be meaningful only when those responsible will be brought to justice. And this will require the rule of law to the Ukrainians know that nobody will escape the judgment”, – said Johnson.

A more substantive discussion with the participation of Ukrainian officials were in closed sections. To the question, how many points out of a possible 10, he would rate the progress of Ukrainian reforms, Johnson said with the British humor and restraint. “I will not be evaluated in points. Or, let’s say, I would put Ukraine more points than Britain has been excellent in the Eurovision song contest. Much more!”, – he stressed.
