Iryna spoke about her view on cooperation with the EUACI:

In its work, the EUACI team takes a holistic approach, strengthening all actors in the anti-corruption infrastructure - state institutions, civil society, investigative media, and local administrations. After all, only through interaction and cross-sectoral cooperation, we can achieve significant results in combating corruption. I believe that we will overcome all challenges. The main thing is to be ready for constant and systematic promotion of changes.
