“There was actually re-foundation of the Reanimation Package of Reforms and the formation of a clear, logical and coherent governance model. This model corresponds to the best governance practice for non-governmental sector, which we have mastered through the collaboration with the international partners and especially with the Embassy of Sweden. The Reanimation Package of Reforms is the most successful coalition of the civil society organisations, since the independence of Ukraine; I am convinced that the new governance model will bring the RPR to new heights and achievements, and will breathe a new life into the RPR,” – stated the director of Media Law Institute, and the member of the Council of the RPR, Taras Shevchenko.
