Governor Zagorodnyy was open to questions and expressed his willingness to closely cooperate with EUAM in the near future in his oblast. Andriy Petrovych Misyats, the Head of Podilska Pravova Liga, stated that Human Rights standards in detention facilities are better than five years ago. With regard to police reform and the change from 'Militsia' to 'Police' he said: “If you call me George I will not speak English immediately. It needs more than just the change of name and uniform”.
