Former Polish Interior Minister Jerzy Miller has joined the group of Ukraine's strategic advisers on reforms, the group's co-chairperson, Leszek Balcerowicz said on 25 April, according to Ukrinform.

"Mr Jerzy Miller, who worked with me in 1997-2000, will be my deputy. He is one of the most prominent state officials," he said.

Balcerowicz's team now also includes a well-known Polish journalist and former Sejm member, Miroslaw Czech, whom he described as a "live link" between Poland and Ukraine because of his Ukrainian origin.

Miller and Czech are already in Ukraine and are acting in accordance with the previously agreed plan.

On 22 April, Balcerowicz and former Slovak Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Miklos headed a group of Ukraine's strategic advisers on reforms.
