Why is this necessary?
Over the last couple of years, the civil society proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that it is capable of efficiently controlling the state apparatus, push for its transparency and accountability, provide recommendations, and change the aspects the institution itself cannot change/ does not want to change/ is not ready to change.
ARMA is an integral part of the anti-corruption mechanism in Ukraine. The Agency is responsible for finding, tracking, and management of assets derived from corruption and other crimes as well as the management of seized assets in criminal proceedings. The assets handed over to the Agency by the courts are mostly classified as “sensitive”, become the matter of high public interest and have strategic importance.
