The newly created anti-corruption agencies already have results in the sphere of exposing and combating corruption. Therefore, these agencies need support in order to further implement the anti-corruption reform in Ukraine. This was stated by the President of the World Bank Group Jim Yong Kim at the meeting with the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine Artem Sytnyk at the Global Forum on Asset Recovery, which took place on December 4-6 in Washington, DC. During the meeting the parties discussed the pressure exerted on the NABU, the investigations which expose top-level corruption and the prospects of establishment of the Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine.

 

It should be reminded that during his last visit to Ukraine this month, Jim Yong Kim emphasized that the establishment of the Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine is critical for the further growth of the Ukrainian economy and is one of the conditions for Ukraine's cooperation with the International Monetary Fund.
