The US billionaire and philanthropist, George Soros, is ready to bankroll the police reform in Ukraine. On Monday, he had a talk with Pres Poroshenko on the issue.
Soros initiated a donor conference in Kyiv July 19-21 to work out the programs, deadlines and amounts of funding.
In 2003-2004, George Soros bankrolled the police reform in Georgia.
The police reform envisages the formation of 6 kinds of police, local, administrative, criminal, financial border and military. Heads of the local police will be appointed by local deputies.
The funding will be clarified after a pilot project to be implemented in the Lviv oblast.
The government of Canada, USAID and CE have expressed their readiness to assist financially in the reform.
