Kyiv is one of the most "transparent" European capitals in terms of access to public information, according to the Transparency International organization. This rating was published on the official organization’s website.

“Vilnius, Kyiv, Madrid, Prague, Pristina and Tallinn are the most transparent European capitals,” says a study by Transparency International.

In 2018, experts under the auspices of Transparency International Slovensko evaluated 26 capitals using 14 indicators. Particular attention was paid to the availability and accessibility of data on the city budget and procurement, on the mayor, MPs and their work, as well as access to public information. Analysts studied the sites of local authorities and the answers to information requests.

Kyiv was in the lead of this pilot study, in particular, thanks to the convenient ProZorro public procurement system, the public register of electronic declarations and the completeness of information on the Kyiv City State Administration website.

However, in the Ukrainian capital there is a lack of a register of lobbyists, which exists, for example, in Madrid. Also, information on the salary of the mayor and his advisers is not publicly available, the organization notes.

Transparency International Ukraine has developed and implements the "Transparency Rating" of the 100 largest cities in Ukraine. The organization’s team annually analyzes cities using 91 indicators in 13 areas. Over two years, the average urban transparency indicator increased by 36%. In 2018, the leaders of the Ukrainian Transparency Rating were Drohobych, Mariupol and Vinnytsia.
