The index offers an annual snapshot of the relative degree of corruption by ranking countries and territories from all over the globe. The 2018 CPI draws on 13 surveys and expert assessments to measure public sector corruption in 180 countries and territories, giving each a score from zero (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean). As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine expects the country to climb to higher than the 50th place in the Corruption Perceptions Index until 2020.
