Ivan Sikora, Open Society Foundation Director, has doubted the the estimated construction cost of Troyeshchina metro line, which was announced by Mayor Klitschko’s team. Construction talks on this major Kyiv infrastructure facility might be connected with the beginning of the election campaign, Sikora suggested.
Accurate and measurable indicators of assessment for tasks and activities of the new State Anti-Corruption Program (State Program on Implementation of State Anti-Corruption Policy in Ukraine (Anti-Corruption Strategy) for 2015 - 2017) should prevent the imitation of the fight against corruption, as well as ineffective and inefficient spending of state and local budgets and international technical assistance.
The capital city authorities should stop runaround for the challenges in Kyiv. The officials should finally deliver the promised mortal attack on corruption schemes in land and city development relations, abuses in the utility provision sphere, the procurement and the budgetary process.
On 21 December 2013, Ivan Sikora, the Director of the “Open Society” Foundation made a speech addressed at fulfillment of anticorruption policy and prevention of conflict of interests on the plenary meeting of the “Political Analyst Club”, that operates within Kyiv-Mohyla Academy.
