"This year's objective is the restoration of confidence, and going after 'big fish'. The next year will be a year of promotion of the newly appointed members of the local prosecuting authorities who will climb to the top of the system's career ladder. As a politician, I will consider my mission accomplished when this happens. The fresh cadres, restoration of the prosecuting authorities' self-government by the efforts of these new members, and the abolition of the investigative functions will feature the new Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine differing from the post-Soviet one," he said.
