"Ukraine currently reached a critical point of corruption. If the Defense Ministry implements all of its anti-corruption obligations, military personnel will be able to defend Ukrainian people better and more actively", - said Katherine Dixon, director of Transparency International (TI) on Defense and Security.

TI in its study notes that Ukraine faces high risk of corruption in military institutions.

Transparency International also calls on Ukrainian government to carry independent monitoring of the Defense Ministry and to investigate all the off-budget spendings.

Anti-Corruption Defence Index classifies the countries on a scale from A (very low risk of corruption) to F (critical risk). Ukraine is now in Group D, with very high risk of corruption, Transparency International reported.
