Denmark to allocate DKK 60 million to Ukraine to support fight against corruption as part of EUACI

Denmark will allocate 60 million DKK ($8.75 million) to Ukraine to support the fight against corruption within the framework of the EU anti-corruption program (EUACI), the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports.

Denmark has been heading the EU Anti-corruption Program in Ukraine (EUACI) since 2016. During today's visit to Ukraine, Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen announced support for the third phase of the program.

“Even before Russia's illegal invasion, Ukraine had made significant progress in the fight against corruption, and even while the country was at war, it managed to continue its positive development. But there are still areas that can be improved, and it is extremely important for Ukraine's dream of the EU that we help it achieve its goals," the Foreign Ministry's press service quoted Rasmussen as saying.

It is indicated that the EU is contributing more than DKK 70 million to the upcoming phase of the program, and Denmark is contributing almost DKK 60 million.

Among other things, the program is aimed at promoting openness and honesty in the restoration of Mykolaiv through close cooperation with the mayor and his team. It is planned to develop the best practices for the reconstruction of Mykolaiv, which can be used in other cities of Ukraine.

The ministry reported that Rasmussen provided information about Denmark's support for the EU anti-corruption program at today's meeting with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba. The foreign ministers of the two countries met in the Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv, for the restoration of which Denmark has a special responsibility.

At the same time, they discussed, among other things, how Denmark and Ukraine can further develop cooperation on Mykolaiv, and how Denmark can continue to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Denmark met with students of Mykolaiv Shipbuilding University, as well as the city authorities.
