President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has promised to weekly dismiss judges who would be unworthy of the high rank of judge. He stated this today at a meeting with the leadership of the parliament, government and law enforcement agencies, - correspondent of OstroV reports.

"Because of the stupid judicial reform, we did not receive a reset of the judiciary and updates - on the contrary, the previous government did everything so that judges depended only on it. Only decisive measures can be made to comply with the law. Such decisive steps are the weekly deprivation of judicial mantles, not worthy of high rank of a judge. Moreover, cleaning should concern all, and first of all, judges of the highestinstances", - he stated.

Zelensky also noted that the courts of the first instance should be filled with new judges, and more than two thousand vacancies should be filled before the New Year.

"But this should already be done by the new High Judicial Qualifications Commission, which will be restarted in the near future, according to the bill I submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine", - the president said.
