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.

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.
