BITEC Inititative: Tregub Gave a Lecture on Increasing Transparency at the MoD
 25 May 2018 NAKO Secretary General Olena Tregub lectured at the Chernyakhovsky National University of Defence of Ukraine for the unit managers within the Ministry of Defence. She spoke about the role of civil society in increasing transparency and integrity at the Ministry. Such events are of special value for Ukraine as through NAKO they provide expert civil society with a chance to explain the role of NGOs in the defence sector and also opens the channels of communication between NAKO and the Ministry of Defence.


The lectures are given in the framework of the BITEC initiative, where NAKO is a partner. With the help of the BITEC (Building Integrity Training and Education Centre) initiative, NAKO contributes to change in Ukraine's defence sector. The goal of the BITEC Initiative is to deliver integrity building courses for security service personnel, and to teach investigatory techniques related to corruption. As a part of this initiative, NAKO has already provided a series of lectures to Ukrainian servicemen and service women in the defence sector.
