E-asset declaration system presented in 10 cities under the ‘Online vs. Corruption’ campaign

Over the course of one month, from 22 July to 19 August 2016, UNDP experts and representatives of the newly established National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) embarked on a tour to ten oblasts to present the e-asset declaration system for public officials.

Online vs  Corruption in Zaporizhzhia 3The new e-asset declaration system was presented to the communities in Chernihiv, Vinnytsia, Khmelnytskyi, Sumy, Kramatorsk, Ternopil, Lviv, Dnipro, Zaporizhia, and Rivne.
Ivan Presniakov, Head of UNDP's Enhanced Public Sector Transparency and Integrity Project, emphasised: "In each city, we presented the system and new legislation to three target groups: public officials, civic activists, and journalists."
The tour started with a press conference, held at an Oblast State Administration, which then followed by a presentation given to over a hundred of public officials such as judges, prosecutors, public servants. These press conferences and presentations were held by representatives of Oblast State Administrations, NACP, and UNDP. Participating officials had an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session. Concurrently, anti-corruption posters were exhibited at Oblast State Administrations.
Each city hosted a meeting with activists, led by a representative of Transparency International Ukraine, a leading anti-corruption organisation. Additionally, UNDP and NACP representatives had several interviews on local TV channels.

According to our estimations, as a result of this tour, there were 19 TV programmes featuring interviews with our experts, 35 TV reports, and numerous materials in other media," said Ivan.
In each city, event attendees were given special print materials, i.e. a brochure "10 steps of a declarant" describing how fil in the declaration and a leaflet for journalists "New e-asset declarations in a nutshell", which were developed under the framework of UNDP's Enhanced Public Sector Transparency and Integrity Project.
The system is planned to be soon presented in the remaining 13 oblasts of Ukraine within the scope of this information campaign.
