In January 2020, Transparency International published its Corruption Perceptions Index in 180 countries for 2019. The report was posted on the organization’s website.

Ukraine lost 2 points and took 126th place out of 180 countries.

“Ukraine’s loss of positions in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2019 indicates a slowdown in anti-corruption reforms over the past few years and the need for another ‘magic kick in the pants’ to improve anti-corruption changes,” Olena Moshenets commented.

Moshenets reminded that a year ago Transparency International Ukraine provided recommendations that could improve country’s performance in the Corruption Perceptions Index. As of the end of 2019, only 6 out of 12 had been completed or partially implemented, and this happened only in the last quarter of the year.

It is a reminder that Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index is based on experts and entrepreneurs surveys conducted annually by the World Bank, US Freedom House and Global Insight, German Bertelsmann Foundation, British Economist Intelligence Unit, Swiss International Business Development Institute and others. These studies analyze investment risks, freedom of speech, living standards, that are in one way or another related to the issues of corruption.
