FOR MEDIA – Activists Present New Online Mapping Tool To Measure Ukraine’s Anticorruption Conditionalities
How Much Ukrainian Anti-corruption Reform Costs for the West?
Tomorrow, on Tuesday, July 11 at 09.30 am, Anti-corruptuion Action Centre will launh a new online instrument of monitoring of the implementation of anti-corruption conditionalities set for Ukraine by international partners – map.antac.org.ua – “Mapping Anti-corruption Conditionalities of Ukraine”.
The presentation will take place at the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre.
The Anti-corruption Action Centre presents an interim report on the fulfilment by the Ukrainian government the requirements of the International Monetary Fund and the European Union in the sphere of prevention and combating of corruption.
The main commitments of Ukraine may be divided into four clusters: prevention of corruption; investigation and prosecution of corruption; access to information and public procurement; tracing and recovery of assets.
The progress of Ukrainian government in all four directions is not uniform. Moreover, the main concern is that the closer to the next presidential election, the more serious is the risk of the destruction of individual “stories of anti-corruption success.” Without the constant control by international partners of the reform process, the key achievement of the Revolution of Dignity is the threat of destruction or depreciation.
The briefing will be held by:
- Daria Kaleniuk, Executive Director of the Anti-corruption Action Centre
- Serhiy Leshchenko, MP, Member of the Parliament Committee on Combating of Corruption
- Hanna Hopko, MP, Head of Parliament Committee on International Relations
The website developed by the AntAC, map.antac.org.ua, contains comprehensive information, documents and analysis of anti-corruption commitments undertaken by the Ukrainian authorities in cooperation with the IMF and the European Union.
The new tool is regularly updated and will be useful to foreign journalists who cover the Ukrainian problem, experts of think tanks, and government officials, who want to keep pace with the Ukrainian anti-corruption reform.
The working language of presentation is English with simultaneous translation to Ukrainian.
Accreditation is on site under press cards. Address: Ukrainian House, Khreschatyk Street, 2.
