In 2023, Ukraine registered an improvement in its fight against corruption, gaining 36 points and ranking 104th out of 180 countries in the global Corruption Perceptions Index. The three-point increase is recognized as one of the best results in the world, according to Transparency International Ukraine.


Ukraine is also among 17 countries that have demonstrated their best score for the entire period.


Corruption Perceptions Index: Ukraine's result for 2023


"Since the Revolution of Dignity and the start of major reforms over the past 10 years, Ukraine has added a total of 11 points in the study. The growth in Corruption Perceptions Index 2023, even in the context of a full-scale war, was made possible by the active work of anti-corruption and other government agencies," Transparency International emphasizes.


Andriy Borovyk, Executive Director of Transparency International Ukraine, emphasized that Ukraine has shown significant progress this year and has demonstrated progressive dynamics over the past 10 years. He noted that the country has already reached the indicators typical for the European Union candidate countries, has built an anti-corruption ecosystem and received real convictions for high-level corruption. 


However, the Executive Director emphasized that there is still a lot of work to be done to reach the EU's performance. He also expressed outrage over pressure on the media and the public, government interference in various areas of public administration, and possible corruption scandals related to defense that could undermine the achievements.


Borovyk also emphasized that the key indicator is the number of points, not a specific place in the ranking. The minimum score (0 points) indicates that corruption is actually replacing the state, while the maximum score (100 points) indicates its practical absence. It is also important to note that the Index measures corruption only in the public sector.
