"The progress of the anti–corruption reform resulted in an improved position in the world ranking, but the absence of an efficient judicial system and the reality of actual impunity of corrupt officials prevent Ukraine from making a huge leap forward and breaking through the 30-point barrier," Transparency International Ukraine reported. Ukraine is ranked 131 out of 176 countries in the World Ranking of Corruption Perception and shared this result with a rate of 29 points with Kazakhstan, Russia, Nepal, and Iran. Denmark scored 90 points, topping the ranking for another year. New Zealand shared the top position last year. Finland and Sweden ranked third and fourth. Somalia, South Sudan and North Korea were at the bottom of the list.
