Ukraine should continue its efforts to establish an anti-corruption court and fulfill the conditions for receiving the next loan tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

United States' Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Wess Mitchell announced this at a news briefing after a meeting with President Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"We were pleased to see that several important reform laws have been adopted in Ukraine, but much more needs to be done. The efforts to create an anti-corruption court should continue. We stressed the importance of further work by such agencies as the NACB (the National Anti-Corruption Bureau) and the SACPO (the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office). We support further work in the energy sector and believe that Ukraine needs to meet the conditions for obtaining the next loan tranche from the IMF," Mitchell said.

Asked about the United States' position on deployment of a United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Donbas, Mitchell said that the possibility of deployment of such a mission in the conflict zone was still being studied.

According to him, the main conditions for its deployment are its deployment throughout the non-government-controlled areas of Donbas and withdrawal of Russian troops.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the United States has emphasized the importance of implementing anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine.

The United States' Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker has said that withdrawal of Russian troops from the Donbas is necessary for deployment of a United Nations peacekeeping mission.
