Miroslav Prodan: Renaming ministries makes no sense
Comparing the political systems of Ukraine and Singapore, we can conclude that they are quite similar. There is also the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Finance and other ministries that work with us. It means that the point is not in renaming organs and not in some exotic functions. It is much more critical to ensure sufficient work.
