Please join the Atlantic Council and the American Center for a European Ukraine on Monday, November 9, 2015 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Atlantic Council headquarters (1030 15th St NW, 12th floor, West Tower Elevators), for a discussion on Ukraine’s war against corruption with a distinguished panel. Wine reception to follow.

The fighting has lulled in eastern Ukraine, but the struggle for a democratic Ukraine is far from over. Endemic corruption is the greatest obstacle in the way of real economic and political reforms. Civil society activists and business leaders are working to increase the pressure on President Poroshenko's government, which has called corruption the "most dreadful evil" in the country, but anti-corruption efforts are still moving too slowly. Today, Ukraine is at a crossroads: if the government does not show the needed political will to tackle corruption, the old system may take hold again, preventing Ukraine from moving toward European integration.

A diverse panel of business leaders, lawmakers, and civil activists will discuss the hard steps that Ukraine must take in the government, financial, banking, and business sectors to truly address the endemic corruption problem.

We hope you can join us for this important and timely discussion. 

Invitation Non-Transferable. Spaces are limited.
