"The evidence allows us to expect 10 times higher enforcement rates simply by giving PEOs equality of treatment and removing arbitrary controls by the State", said the coordinator of the Odesa Regional Justice Reform Council, member of the Ethics Committee of the PEO Association, Valeriy Prutyliak.
