Do not want to fall into the trap of corruption – do not give gifts to commanders!

Direct subordination of loved ones .., gifts – as a hidden bribe, etc ..! What are the changes, innovations in anti-corruption legislation that commanders, chiefs and other officials need to know in order to prevent corruption, how to maintain integrity in military teams?

Instructor from National University Defense of Ukraine named after Ivan Chernyakhovsky (NUDU) spoke about this and much more during a two-day mobile course at the Khmelnytsky Garrison House of officers for command staff and authorized for prevention of corruption in military units, institutions and organizations.
Colonel Volodymyr Bevz, head of scientific department BITEC of the NUDU, noted that this is one of the courses included in the catalog of defense management in various areas of professional development.
– We have three anti-corruption courses: for the leadership of the relevant levels of the Ministry of Defense, the Office of the Commander-in-Chief, the General Staff and the military administration; for those who perform the functions of anti-corruption commissioners at the appropriate levels of military administration, and the third – mobile. In fact, so that we can work mobile and efficiently with representatives of military units on the ground, in military garrisons for a long time without service, – said Colonel Volodymyr Bevz.
First of all, during theoretical and practical classes, NUDUs see the main task of providing and updating the knowledge of servicemen and employees on anti-corruption issues.

– In this way, in accordance with the calendar plan approved by the updated anti-corruption program of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine for 2021-2024, we try to cover as many garrisons as possible. They came to Khmelnytsky from Lviv region, where they worked for three days, then there will be Zakarpattia region. As a rule, in addition to authorized persons, our audience is lawyers, officers of moral and psychological support, representatives of departments and personnel services, who by their functional responsibilities in one way or another perform tasks related to the prevention of corruption in military personnel.

We have lists of participants in advance, so each time we adapt our practical tasks to the needs of a specific audience, – the officer emphasized.
During the classes, the participants of the mobile course, under the guidance of NGO specialists, work out and act out the most common tasks in daily practice in order to acquire basic skills and competencies in solving typical problems.

– For example, in garrisons it often happens, especially in the remote, where there are problems with employment, that the husband holds a managerial position, and the wife or children who serve fall into the sphere of his direct subordination. According to the requirements of anti-corruption legislation, this is prohibited because it leads to a conflict of private or official interests. A gift can also be a problem. The usual kind of gratitude for the common service can be used as a covert bribery of a person, an official. When gifting a commander or a boss, he can be placed in a certain dependence, hoping that he will act in favor of the donor.
How to solve such problematic issues and prevent such cases in practice is our common task with the audience, – summed up Volodymyr Bevz.

He also added that an important element in achieving success in the fight against corruption is the awareness and competence not only of commissioners and lawyers, but also of commanders and chiefs at various levels.
