A new global rule of law index has ranked Ukraine 78th out of 113 countries, an improvement of three places on its standing in 2015. The report was released Oct. 20 by Washington-based think tank the World Justice Project.

Ukraine’s position puts it 14 places above neighboring Russia but below states such as Belarus, Botswana and the United Arab Emirates.

The publication of the report comes as Ukraine approaches the three-year anniversary of the EuroMaidan Revolution. The demands of that uprising, which eventually led to the ouster of ex-president and Kremlin-ally Viktor Yanukovych, included greater rule of law and closer integration with the European Union.
