 “To ensure a more transparent, more secure and more prosperous future, responsibility to fight corruption starts with everyone", - Kеstutis Lanсinskas

Head of the European Union Advisory Mission Kęstutis Lančinskas underlined the special responsibility that journalists and civil society activists have in combatting corruption in Ukraine.

Censor.NET reports citing press service of the EUAM.

"The high level of compliance with the declaration process among top-level officials in Ukraine is a positive sign and the authorities should be commended for this. But it is only the first step. For the fight against corruption to be truly successful, anti-corruption institutions such as NABU, NAPC and SAPO need to be given the capacity, resources and independence to pursue the activities they have been assigned according to Ukrainian legislation. The only people who benefit from under-resourced institutions or inter-institutional rivalries are criminals," Lancinskas stated referring to the recent submission of electronic declarations in Ukraine.

"It would be a mistake to perceive fighting corruption as purely the responsibility of state institutions. To ensure a more transparent, more secure and more prosperous future, the responsibility to fight corruption starts with everyone. Especially journalists and civil society activists," the official added.
