The movement of people who don’t want to give corruption and who are ready to report corruption has been growing in Ukraine. What categories of the population tolerate corruption the least? How to report corruption safely and effectively? What is business already doing to fight against corruption? How can the DeCorruption project help active citizens unite? Experts will answer these questions and more at the press conference on December 7.

The press conference, dedicated to the second wave of the communication campaign I Don’t Bribe will take place on Thursday, December 7, at 10AM in the news agency Interfax-Ukraine. Experts will speak about personal resistance to corruption.
