STRASBOURG, February 26, /ITAR-TASS/. Group of States against Corruption (Greco) has issued an appeal to the Ukrainian authorities to take supplementary measures towards making the financing of political parties and election campaigns more transparent.
This is said in a report on the execution of obligations by Kiev, which Greco published Wednesday.
The group that acts under the auspices of the Council of Europe drafted sixteen recommendations to the Ukrainian authorities in 2011 on two subjects - ‘Incrimination’ and ‘Transparency of Political Parties Financing’. The assessment published Wednesday says Ukraine has either acted in full or has taken more of less conscientiously three provisions on the list.
Of the seven recommendations that were implemented in full and the six recommendations that were not implemented, the majority refer to the second issue, Greco experts said. In the light of it, they asked Kiev to continue the reforms that have begun already.
As for the second issue, the group said Ukraine did not act on the recommendations in full. Greco expressed deep dissatisfaction with an incomplete and partly contradictory reform of legislation in that sphere.
Greco was set up in 1999 by the Council of Europe for effectuating the monitoring of how the member-states comply with their pledges to fight corruption.
Ukraine became the 40th member of the group in 2006.
