Corruption has been a subject of popular research since the 1950s and has not lost its relevance today. The attention of many scientists, international organizations, ordinary citizens, and others to this problem is because corruption has a direct impact on almost all existing social relations (including political, economic, legal, and social), the redistribution of economic resources, the effectiveness of state regulation, national security and much more, which entails a slowdown of state development, creates an indirect threat to national security, the level of trust of citizens, etc. The topic becomes even more relevant in the context of the current state of war in Ukraine. Appropriate measures to counter the aggression of the Russian Federation need to take into account the issue of fighting corruption, which is an integral part of the complex of threats facing our state. Therefore, the purpose of this work is to highlight the problems of state regulation of anti-corruption activities in Ukraine in the conditions of war and to provide recommendations for improving state anti-corruption activities. The research used the following methods: sociological and statistical, analytical, system-structural, classification and grouping, deduction, abstraction, dialectical, modeling, analysis, and synthesis.
