The West demands that Ukraine creates a high-level anti-corruption court, otherwise the country will be denied access to USD 800 million the Poroshenko administration has been promised. Western institutions have made ultimatum-like declarations, trying to force Ukraine to do something it opposes. Poroshenko hopes that he would receive the money anyway.
Repeating pro-Kremlin disinformation about George Soros. Petro Poroshenko submitted a draft law on the anti-corruption court on December 22, 2017. International institutions did indeed criticise the submitted draft bill for multiple reasons, most importantly for not following the Venice Commissions recommendations. Poroshenko stated he is open to having the draft amended during the second reading in Parliament. There is no proof that Ukrainians were against creating an anti-corruption court.
