Last week (27, 29 January 2016) anticorruption Lab of Active Citizens of Media Law Institute held two trainings in Ternopil and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
The results depict that the problems of corruption exist, however, the cases differ per region. Furthermore, the trainings demonstrate an increasing number of active citizens willing to counter corruption locally. Thus, the mission of Lab of Active Citizens is particularly relevant and current for them, since the majority of participants expressed their concerns about the lack of means to fight corruption.
