Activists from the Anti-Corruption Action Center on July 11 launched a new English-language digital map to help Ukraine’s international partners and donors monitor the implementation of anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian government has fulfilled 60 percent of its obligations to international donors, including the International Monetary Fund and the European Union, by the estimate of Daria Kaleniuk, executive director of the Anti-Corruption Action Center.

However, since the European Union granted visa-free travel to Ukrainians starting on June 11, watchdogs and reformist lawmakers say the fight against corruption has stalled out.

A wonderful idea. International attention on both progress as well as counter-progress must be kept focused. Perhaps the map should also include the names of publicly elected officials who are known to consistently resist all anti-corruption efforts. At the least a rating system could be developed based on the number of times a national deputy supports, proposes, or votes in favor of an anti-corruption bill or funding. That rating system could then be used in political campaigns to make sure that he/she is not returned to office. In the U.S., respected conservative organizations provided such scores (e.g. 70%, etc) to indicate the extent to which a member of congress votes in favor of conservative legislation.....these percentiles or rankings are very helpful to the public that can easily confuse promises for performance and does not have the means to keep score.
