Grybauskaite: Corruption does more harm to Ukraine than war

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite believes that Ukraine must now focus its efforts on combating corruption, as it does even more harm to the state than the war.

The President of Lithuania said this at a joint press conference with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The recent e-declarations of officials indicate that you have much work ahead in terms of fighting corruption, which sometimes does even more harm than the war on your territory," Grybauskaite said.

She assured that Lithuania was ready to share its experience in fight against corruption and to send the experts to Ukraine to examine the real state of the problem.
