 Poroshenko signs e-declaration law

During a meeting with representatives of the commission to select members of the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption, President Petro Poroshenko signed the law on amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine on electronic declaration by civil servants of their property, income, spending, and financial obligations in 2016. The law was part of the so-called visa-free package Ukraine has to pass for the European Union to decide on Ukrainian citizens' visa-free travels.

Censor.NET reports citing the presidential press service.

"The law is to take effect in 2016. Officials should submit their declarations in 2016, and liability is also due in 2016. I'm signing this law in your presence," Poroshenko said at the meeting.

All the laws and amendments included in the visa-free package are important to Ukraine and aimed at fighting corruption, he added.

Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jan Tombinski, who was also present at the meeting, said he welcomed the adoption of the law, adding that European Commission experts had been involved in its finalization.
