Congratulations Volodymyr Zelensky. Now it’s time for reform
I would like to congratulate Mr. Volodymyr Zelensky on becoming Ukraine’s next president, but I must stress that reforms on corruption and the economy have been insufficient to date.
Knut Fleckenstein, S&D spokesperson on foreign affairs, said:
“Congratulations to Mr. Zelensky for his landslide victory. I fully understand the decision of the citizens of Ukraine and the need to intensify the fight against corruption and the need for economic reforms. Now is a turning point to continue in the democratic and economic development in the country. We S&Ds give the newly elected President the chance to tackle the upcoming challenges. We appreciate, that Mr Zelenski has already announced the path to the European Union and a new approach in the dialogue with Moscow. I also respect the wish to have a referendum on the issue of NATO.”
