 Corruption harms Ukraine stronger than war with Russia, - Lithuania's Grybauskaite

Corruption does more harm to Ukraine than the Russian aggression in the Donbas.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite said it during the Ukrainian-Lithuanian business forum.

The situation around Ukraine's corruption is far from desirable, according to her.

She stressed that Ukrainians have to fight not only external aggression but also internal corruption that impedes country's development and well-being.

The international community believes that in case with Ukraine corruption is even more dangerous than the Russian threat, the president of Lithuania added.

Grybauskaite noted that corruption is deeply rooted in the Ukrainian society.
