E-petition is a special kind of collective appeal (e-appeal). In the world, it works. In Ukraine, it is rapidly gaining popularity among the citizens
E-parliament can be considered as one of the most promising forms of e-democracy within the e-state. On 3 February 2016 the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Hroisman presented a new project on establishing e-parliament in Ukraine.
On the threshold on the New Year, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has adopted in the first reading draft Law of Ukraine registered under № 3693.

Since independence in 1991, Ukraine has done little to reform the style of governance created during Soviet rule. New constitutional amendments by President Poroshenko offer the chance to change that. However fears that decentralization will serve big business and separatists in the east mean some in Ukraine want to stall the process. This would be wrong. It is urgent that decentralization proceed in a careful, transparent and participatory way.
Tax authorities refuse to correct adjusted tax information in electronic databases of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine on the results of inspections (without taking tax notification-decision).

Inspection reform is not new to Ukraine. The period 2009-2011 saw a number of important legislative steps in this area. The results of this eagerness to improve the business environment of Ukraine seem to have been mixed, at best.
