You're reading: Danish ambassador: Trust between public, government is antidote to corruption
on social media

Denmark, consistently ranked among the world’s least corrupt nations, will give aid to fight graft to one of the most corrupt ones, Ukraine.

Copenhagen is set to lead the implementation of a 16 million euro European Union anti-corruption project. Due to begin early next year, it comes on the watch of Danish Ambassador to Ukraine Christian Dons Christensen. A veteran of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, Christensen began his diplomatic career in Moscow in 1999. He told the Kyiv Post that even though Ukraine’s war with Kremlin-backed armed groups in the east continues to demand time and energy, the country must not allow this to stop the drive for reform.

“Mustering this counter-pressure against an aggressive neighbor to the east takes a lot of resources,” Christensen said in an interview with the Kyiv Post. “Not only human and economic resources, but actually also mental resources,” he said.
