Over the five years of cooperation, the Chervonohrad City Council in partnership with EUACI, has implemented eight modules of a geographic information system, conducted integrity assessments of two municipal enterprises, and launched the city's e-reception.

According to TI Ukraine's Transparency of City Councils 2023 study, Chervonohrad has moved from "non-transparent" city  to "partially transparent."

"We are grateful to the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative for its support and cooperation. During our joint work on implementing best practices of integrity governance, we can see Chervonohrad among the rankings of Ukraine's most transparent cities. This year's study has shown that we are moving in the right direction. After analyzing the results, we will identify our weaknesses and work on strengthening them. And the main goal for the next year is to achieve even higher scores in the rate," mentioned Chervonohrad City Mayor Andriy Zalivskyy.
