A crowd rallies in front of Ukraine's legislature, the Verkhovna Rada, on Dec. 8 to demand a cleaner government without selective justice and graft.
Hundreds of people rallied near Ukraine's legislature on Dec. 8 calling for a cleaner government, free of graft and selective justice as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden addressed parliament inside.
On a two-day visit to Kyiv, Biden expressed America’s support to Ukraine as long as the post-EuroMaidan Revolution government continues fighting graft. He told parliament to live up to the expectations of the EuroMaidan Revolution, during which more than 100 people were killed, the majority of whom from sniper fire in February 2014.
“Ukraine has already done a great of deal of work of critical importance, but not everything has yet been done, he said. Biden said that while he never tells people in other countries what they should do, a democracy cannot thrive amidst corruption, which he likened to a cancerous tumor,” Interfax Ukraine reported. “A successful fight against corruption requires the reform of the judiciary; everyone, even oligarchs, must act under the same rules, pay taxes, and not interfere with the course of justice, Biden said.”
