On June 20, 2022, the Parliament adopted the Anti-Corruption Strategy, obliging the NACP to prepare and submit to the Government a draft State Anti-Corruption Program for 2023-2025 (hereinafter referred to as the Program) by December 10, and the Government — to approve it no later than January 10, 2023.
Within 5 months, in fruitful cooperation with a number of state bodies, leading experts in relevant fields, and with the engagement of the public, the National Agency developed a draft State Anti-Corruption Program for 2023-2025.
After the Government sent the draft for revision, the NACP agreed on the positions with 15 state bodies. At the same time, the public is outraged by the proposals of a number of bodies that are openly aimed at “cementing” the existing ineffective and burdensome procedures and corruption practices, in particular, proposals and comments by the Council of Judges of Ukraine, the High Council of Justice, the National School of Judges, and the Anti-Monopoly Committee.
Thus, agreeing with a number of the comments proposed by the mentioned bodies may lead to the distortion of the content of the State Anti-Corruption Program and negate the value of this document.
In this regard, the public calls on the Government to approve the State Anti-Corruption Program for 2023-2025 as soon as possible and not to allow its content to be emasculated.
