A key tool to curb corruption in Ukraine is introducing measures to narrow down chances for illegal activities. The New Time quotes Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.
He stressed that the issue of corruption has two components: corruption as a criminal offense, and corruption as an institutional phenomenon, which must be addressed in the first place.
"It’s within my competence to exert efforts to reduce the institutional capacity for corruption," said Volodymyr Groysman. "I can give one example: we have introduced automated VAT refund. The effect of reducing corruption only due to this step is estimated at billions of hryvnias."
The Head of Government added progress in the anti-corruption struggle would be reinforced by increasing the efficiency of the judicial branch and work of the law-enforcement agencies.
