How Kyiv becomes a digital city

The capital improves transparency indicators from year to year. According to the results of 2020, Kyiv took the 13th place in the Transparency Ranking-2020 and received 68.2 points out of 100 which is 4.1 points more than the previous year. The capital is accompanied by Dubno (68.9 points) and Bila Tserkva (70.1 points). 

The average transparency indicator increased by 16.7 points over the four years of the study. Similar positive dynamics can be tracked both with large cities (such as Vinnytsia or Lviv) and in small regional centers (for example, Druzhkivka or Izium).

In terms of accountability, Kyiv is among the top ten cities in Ukraine, sharing the sixth place with Mukachevo and Ternopil. 

Although the rating position of Kyiv is quite high, the absolute results of the capital leave much to be desired — the city scored only 19 points out of 100 possible. 

If we compare the transparency of Kyiv and other European capitals, the results may surprise many. According to a study by Transparency International, the Ukrainian capital is included in the group of cities where access to public information is not complicated.

Kyiv is accompanied by Madrid, Prague, Tallinn, and Vilnius. The group of cities where access to information is complicated includes Athens, Belgrade, Chisinau, and even Stockholm.
