Ukraine dropped to 22 place in world ranking of freedom of information
Since early September, Ukraine has lost 3 positions
Ukraine took the 22th place in the international ranking of ensuring the right to information, which was made by the authoritative international organizations Access Info Europe (Spain) and the Centre for Law and Democracy (Canada).
Ukrainian legislation on access to information took 22 position out of 111 countries in the world, gaining 108 points out of 150 possible.
Mexico led the ranking with 136 points (the law of 2002, amended 2016). On the second place appeared the leader of earlier rankings - Serbia, on the third - Slovenia.
At the beginning of September 2016 Ukraine was on the 19th position of the rating. At the same time, the number of points of our legislation has remained unchanged. But we are overtaken by other three countries, including Sri Lanka and Kenya which adopted new laws in 2016.
