President Yanukovych meet Attorney General Medvedko

The President pointed to urgency of judicial reform.

Viktor Yanukovych also said it is important to provide implementation of the law on improvement of social standards. The Attorney General informed the President of Ukraine that Attorney General's Office currently sends relevant cases to court, because the Cabinet has been ignoring its protest appeals. The President ordered that the Office took immediate action against officials who break the law.

President Yanukovych also instructed the Office to conduct in cooperation with the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine a joint unit of budgetary funds use, both internal and received from the IMF, during last and this year.

Sides have also discussed the issue of VAT refunds. The President pointed to urgency of the issue, adding that currently VAT is refunded to exporters actually in "manual mode".

President Yanukovych also said that it is necessary to provide legality of tax collection. "What were the grounds for Tax Administration to collect taxes in advance for three months? There is no place in the world, where such thing would be possible and I would like Attorney General's Office strictly monitored observation of the law", said Viktor Yanukovych.
