Third of Ukrainians consider state hopelessly corrupt

Over 30% of Ukrainians said they believe the country’s corruption problem is hopeless.

According to a study by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, more than half of the respondents said that Ukraine is really fighting corruption. However, 34% of respondents said that Ukraine is mired in “hopeless corruption and there are no positive changes”.

The institute also noted that the country’s citizens are very concerned about this issue, since the state depends on Western assistance. At the same time, the United States and the European Union have already stated that they will strictly control the spending of funds allocated to Kyiv.

Earlier, the American authorities appointed a special inspector who will monitor the expenditure of funds allocated to Ukraine.

Over the past year and a half, hundreds of corruption scandals have broken out in the country. Some of them were in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
