September 5, 2015. Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, has visited the Kyiv Regional Center for Testing Candidates for Post of Head of Prosecutor’s Offices at Local Level. He communicated with the candidates and shraed his expectations regarding new Prosecutor’s Office.

According to the President, the number of Prosecutor’s Office employees is to be reduced by 3 thousand, and it will make up 12 thousand people. The number of district and city prosecutor’s offices is to be reduced from 639 to 178. The salary will be increased due to reduction of accusatory bodies’ personnel, which will lead to improvement of work quality and elimination of bribery system.

Petro Poroshenko stressed that 90% of candidates, participating in testing, had never worked at the Prosecutor's Office.
