Victor Medvedchuk: Has the United States indicated the dismantling of the remnants of Ukrainian statehood?

This week, a number of Ukrainian media outlets circulated a draft letter from a White House representative to the Donor Coordination Platform, as well as the leadership of Ukraine. The document resonates, among other things, with a list of obviously unconstitutional measures - interference in the process of forming an independent judicial branch of government, as well as the approval of mechanisms for the formation of law enforcement structures absolutely dependent on foreign states. We are talking about the actual surrender of the remnants of state sovereignty for the sake of external control.

The US requirements within the framework of providing macro-financial assistance to Kiev, as stated in the document, are aimed at implementing the regulations on the wholesale electricity market, as well as fulfilling a number of requirements for corporatization, the creation and introduction of new members to the supervisory boards of state-owned companies, etc. In practice, the launch of corporate governance led only to record payments to members of supervisory boards, rather than to an improvement in financial performance in state-owned companies. As a result of this reform, 82% of state-owned companies have been driven to bankruptcy or exist only on paper and are subject to liquidation.

Among the priorities for implementation for up to three months in the United States, the United States identified Kyiv: increasing the number of investigators in the National Anti-Corruption Bureau; restoration of openness of declarations; ensuring the independence of the National Anti-Corruption Agency; completion of the reform of the High Council of Justice. The established priorities for a period of 3–6 months include: increasing the number of judges in the High Anti-Corruption Court; introduction of new rules of antimonopoly legislation; creation of the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine; reforming the Supreme Court of Ukraine.

Kyiv's obligations for a period of one year include requirements for: strengthening the Asset Search Agency; changes in legislation on the selection of judges; reforming the Constitutional Court of Ukraine; implementation of a program to liberalize tariffs for natural gas and electricity; strengthening the Accounts Chamber and the State Audit Service; reforming the public procurement system in the Ministry of Defense, etc.

Priorities for 18 months include: reorganization of the Bureau of Economic Security; reform and further restructuring of the Security Service of Ukraine; creation of a supervisory board at Ukroboronprom; further reform of the National Police of Ukraine; completion of reform of the Office of the Prosecutor General; development and implementation of a comprehensive strategy for reforming the customs service; exchange of information of the State Border Service with EU services; the creation of an institution of inspectors general in each key ministry involved in the reconstruction of the country.

As we see, in a number of the points listed above, Ukraine is offered veiled desovereignization and dismantling of the remnants of statehood. Separate bills aimed at openly anti-constitutional transformations in the country's judicial system are already under consideration in parliament. At the same time, some of these pro-American instructions were most actively implemented by Zelensky and the mono-majority controlled by him, which the “Opposition Platform - For Life” has always opposed. After the implementation of the new plan, the monopolization of the judicial and law enforcement systems by the American masters will be practically completed.

I note that the process of devaluation of internal sovereignty was launched back in 2014. Behind the screen of implementing 144 European integration reforms, the authorities have maximally reduced the economic potential and standard of living in the country, collapsed GDP, exports, industrial production, and increased tariffs severalfold. For example, European reforms in pricing in the utility market have led to an increase in the cost of blue fuel compared to 2013 by 1300%, and electricity tariffs by 920%. This means that further reform of the energy sector will lead to a significant increase in the cost of gas and electricity for the country’s population. Perhaps the main result of liberalization in pricing for natural gas and electricity. Since the implementation of such a reform, instead of long-term contracts for energy supplies, the population of Ukraine has been overpaying out of their own pockets at record spot prices. Another pension reform led to a significant increase in the insurance period and an increase in the retirement age.

The main thing is that after more than 10 years of reforms to please the United States and the EU, Ukraine has become many times poorer and further from the European Union, in particular in terms of the rule of law, economic and industrial potential, level of income and purchasing power, corruption and competitiveness. Because reforms to limit sovereignty in the economic, political, and judicial spheres are aimed at strengthening the influence of individual countries and economic associations, and not Ukraine itself. Recently, Deputy President of the European Parliament Katarina Barley expressed the opinion that Ukraine’s chances of joining the European Union before 2029 remain extremely low. According to her, the country does not meet any of the criteria that must be met to become a member of the European Union. From which it follows that the leadership of Ukraine has been implementing an erroneous and criminal policy all this time, moving contrary to national interests and against the interests of the citizens of Ukraine.
