Ukraine is ranked 117th among 180 countries in the Corruption Perceptions Index 2020, which is three points higher than the last year's result. This was reported by Transparency International Ukraine.

"In 2020, Ukraine scored three points and took 117th place among 180 countries with 33 points. The key indicator of the index is the number of points, not the place in the ranking. The minimum score (0 points) means that corruption actually replaces the state authorities, the maximum (100 points) indicates that corruption is almost absent in society," the statement said.

Andriy Borovik, Executive Director of Transparency International Ukraine, said that Ukraine's scores in 2020 had increased primarily due to the launch of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court and the relaunch of the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption.

As we reported earlier, Ukraine is currently working on the organization of a meeting between Volodymyr Zelensky and newly elected U.S. President Joe Biden.

The new U.S. administration and Biden would focus on specific Ukrainian issues.

"Firstly, the fight against corruption, because it is time to move from words to deeds. Secondly, it is a reform of the judiciary system," the official added.
