The city's newly-launched centre will focus on exposing corruption in public finances and local administrative bodies.
Launched by Kharkiv Euromaidan activists and some of the recently-elected deputies, the Anti-corruption Centre will produce bi-weekly reports on local TV and monitor public procurement deals and decisions of the local councils. The team will also organise regular press briefings and conduct on investigative journalism master classes in Kharkiv, Poltava, Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk as well as Donetsk and Luhansk regions, to increase public understanding of corrupt practices and means of combating them.
