Ukrainians believe the courts are the worst for taking bribes.

Transparency International’s Global Corruption Barometer 2007 reports that Ukrainians see the judiciary, political parties and the police as most corrupt.  According to their findings, 30% of their respondents said that they had had to pay a bribe for certain services this year, against 23% the previous year.

On a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 is where a particular sphere is not corrupt, the rating given the courts was 4.2 which was the same as last year. Political parties and the police were rated at 4.1, with both having stood at 4.2 the previous year.

Corruption in the private sector was rated at 3.9, against 4.0 last year.

However the opposite was the case for medical and tax areas with this rising to 4.0 against 3.9 last year.

Other ratings  2007  2006

Education    3.8  the same

Registration and  permits  3.4  the same

The military  3.1  the same

The media  3.2  3.1

Communal services  3.1  2.8

Civic organizations  3.2  3.0

Religious organizations  2.3  2.2

As far as their expectations for the next three years, 44% of those surveyed believe that there will be no change, 38% expect an increase in corruption and only 18% were convinced that the level of corruption would fall.

70% believed that the Government’s efforts against corruption were inefficient, 22% consider that they are of no benefit, and only 8% said that they could be considered efficient. 

“The Global Corruption Barometer 2007 reflects the findings of a public opinion survey that looks at the citizens’ perceptions and experiences of corruption in 60 countries and territories. It explores the issue of petty bribery in greater depth than ever before, identifying the sectors most affected by corruption and highlighting people’s personal experience of bribery, its frequency and how much individuals must pay. It also asks how people see corruption evolving in the future and how effective they rate their governments’ efforts to fight it. “
