Without reforming the system, Ukraine cannot fight corruption, political expert Valery Dymov said, speaking on ZIK TV late Oct. 2.
Because of the free-for-all in the Rada, its rating is very low. No judicial reform has been implemented. Only 10% of corrupt judges have been dismissed, he said.
The old political system is well-entrenched. Murky dealings and horse trading prevail in the legislature.
Political parties and Rada factions are merely departments of criminal clans that sent them to the legislature to defend their economic interests, he said.
Ukraine is bogged down in corruption, while lawmakers engage in dubious deals to enrich themselves, he said.
