KIEV, November 16. /TASS/. Ukraine has called on the European Union to set up a special fund to pay premium to Ukrainian government officials to drive them off corruption.

"We need a helping hand in uprooting corruption. We would need an incentive fund for government officials to be set up in a span of two years," Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said on Monday.

In his words, the fund will be used to "make extra payments to prosecutors, judges, government officials, customs officers who would carry out reforms and who would stay away from corruption schemes."

He said the root of the corruption among Ukrainian government officials was in their low wages. "If a government official is paid a wage of $100 we will never be able to do away with corruption," Yatsenyuk said at an anti-corruption conference.

He suggested an international anti-corruption mission led by representatives of the European Union and the United States be set up in Ukraine.

"Our suggestion is that our partners from the European Union and the United States delegate FBI investigators and EU law enforcers who would help Ukraine’s police to counter corruption and investigate corruption-related crimes," he said.
