Transparency International: Ukraine Ranked 131 Out Of 176 Countries In World Ranking of Corruption Perception

Transparency International, an international anticorruption non-government organization, says Ukraine is ranked 131 out of 176 countries in the World Ranking of Corruption Perception.

Transparency International Ukraine announced this in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Ukraine is ranked 131 out of 176 countries in the World Ranking of Corruption Perception and shared this result with a rate of 29 points together with Kazakhstan, Russia, Nepal, and Iran," reads the statement.

The statement reads that Ukraine scored 29 points out of 100 possible in the world Corruption Perceptions Index (СРІ) for 2016, which is an improvement of two points compared to 2015.

"However, this meager progress is not enough for the country, the authorities of which called fighting against corruption the main priority," reads the statement.

In the opinion of the international non-government organization, the progress of the anti-corruption reform resulted in an improved position in the world ranking. However, the organization believes that the absence of an efficient judicial system and the reality of actual impunity of corrupt officials prevent Ukraine from making a huge leap forward and breaking through the 30-point barrier.

The statement reads that the World Justice Project Rule of Law Index survey gave Ukraine most of the points, which is taken into account in forming the CPI. The rate of Ukraine increased of ten points in comparison with previous years.

In particular, the rate her improved by 14% following the reduced abuse of office in the government. The rate has improved by 6% in police and the armed forces.

The World Competitiveness Yearbook survey, which gave Ukraine additional three points in 2017, indicates absence of changes in the judicial branch of power.

The Freedom House Nations in Transit survey gave Ukraine four points in 2017. It indicates an important role of the civil society in the implementation of democratic transformations.

The statement reads that Ukraine got negative assessments from the World Economic Forum Executive Opinion Survey (-1 point) and Economist Intelligence Unit Country Risk Ratings (-2 points). The surveys point to the high level of corruption during allocation of public funds and inability of the judicial system to prevent this.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Ukraine held rank 130 out of 168 on the Corruption Perception Index (CPI) published by the international anti-corruption non-government organization Transparency International in January 2016.
