In 2015, new anti-corruption legislation came into force which required all public agencies in Ukraine to develop risk-based anti-corruption programs.

To support this work, the National Agency on Corruption Prevention, which is responsible for the training and implementation of the state’s anti-corruption policy, approved a methodology for carrying out corruption risk assessments as well as recommendations for the development of these programmes.

At the end of 2017, using this methodology, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) established a corruption risk assessment committee, which identifies spheres with the biggest risks.
