Since the beginning of combat operations in the Donbass region, Ukraine has received hundreds of millions of dollars of international aid for the defense sector. Is there a possibility to control the distribution of such a substantial aid? Is the government responsible for its use? Is this help essential for the forefront? What kind of legislation is necessary for Ukraine to control allocation of resources provided and their impact on the strengthening of defense?
Such questions will be discussed at a press conference on joint study of the Independent Anti-Corruption Committee of Defense (NACO) and the Ukraine Transparency International Defence and Security (DS-TE) UK “Enhancing security assistance. Making the system work.”
The event will take place on Wednesday, May 24, at 11.30 in the Ukraine Crisis Media Center located at Khreshchatyk, 2.
