For any country to remain peaceful and progressive, its political structure needs to be streamlined. However, unfortunately for Ukraine, the country has been facing economic, political, and social turmoil for the last many years, and the part of the blame can be attributed to the weak government and semi-presidential format of leadership in the country. The country has potential to grow and has been moving on the right track for long.
