The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau of Poland have agreed to cooperate in the exchange of information and experience in preventing corruption, investigations and revealing corrupt schemes.
The press service of NABU said the memorandum was signed by the bureaus in Warsaw.
"We've studied Poland, Romania, Austria and the experience of other countries to select the best model for combating corruption in Ukraine. I'm sure that it is important to maintain tight relations with anti-corruption agencies of other states. Corruption schemes being investigated by our detectives mainly do not end in Ukraine," NABU Head Artem Sytnyk said.

He said talks about the memo had been held since last year.
"The functions of the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau of Poland are similar to NABU's functions. Our analysts and detectives had a chance to study the experience of their Polish colleagues," he said.
The arrival of NABU representatives to Poland was organized with support of the EU Advisory Mission for Civilian Security Sector Reform Ukraine (EUAM Ukraine).
