A number of NGOs in Ternopil have decided to form a public committee to purge corrupt officials, ZIK reports May 14.
Among its members are local branches of Pravy Sector, Maidan Self-Defense - Ternopil, Trident, AutoMaidan and other NGOs.
Their colleagues from the Lviv lustration committee came to Ternopil to share their experience.
In Lviv, the public committee includes 30 NGOs, with 6 commissions.
The main purpose of such public lustration committees is to recruit grass-roots Ukrainians to control the executive.
The activities of the Lviv committee have reached such proportions that officials are aware they won’t go unpunished for their corrupt deeds, Halyna Yanko, the head of the Lviv committee says.
