E-declaration law

Electronic declaration for officials was canceled after the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Now, they have decided to reinstate the norm. The Verkhovna Rada has passed the corresponding law, but without the crucial amendment regarding the immediate opening of the declaration registry.

Following this, Ukrainians launched a petition calling on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to veto the law. The head of state did veto it and also called on parliamentarians to pass the law with the provision for an open registry, a move supported by the anti-corruption committee of the Rada on September 18.
