Public Union “Reanimation Package of Reforms Coalition” was officially registered on May 08, 2019. The Constituent Assembly of the Union was held on April 23, 2019.
Registration of the Reanimation Package of Reforms Coalition as a legal entity in the form of a public union took place following the decision of the General Meeting of the informal coalition, the Reanimation Package of Reforms, adopted in 2018.
The Union was established by the RPR members, the association of NGOs and experts that after the Revolution of Dignity joined their forces in March 2014 to develop a consolidated position on the reforms necessary for the country and their proper implementation.
The founders of the Union are 25 organizations that are full members of the informal coalition Reanimation Package of Reforms.
RPR’s purpose, objectives and values remain unchanged: support for and advancement of reforms in order to build an independent, consolidated, democratic, legal, strong and authoritative Ukrainian state with a wealthy society and equal development and self-fulfilment opportunities for each person, as well as promotion of the consolidation of civil society in Ukraine.
The Union carries out its activities based on the principles of political impartiality and non-affiliation with the businesses.
The Union is open to new members and cooperation to promote reforms with all the public associations that were full and associate members of the informal RPR coalition, as well as other civil society organizations.
