Announcement: Index of integrity in defence governance

The event will take place on December 9 at 11:00

NAKO will present this year’s results for Ukraine according to the Government Defence Integrity Index (GDI), prepared by the Defence and Security Program of the international anti-corruption organization Transparency International. Ukraine was included in the group of countries with a score of “D”, which indicates the presence of high corruption risks; it received 41 points out of 100. During this event, we will discuss what needs to be done for a higher result and whether the indicator has improved compared to previous years.  After the presentation, stakeholders, experts, and volunteers will discuss priorities for defence agencies and specific steps needed to reduce corruption risks in the defence sector.
