He told a press conference in Chernihiv, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.
"I do not consider the number of detained persons as an achievement, although I realize this is inevitable. But I have neither "Lutsenko's list" in my head of those who must be detained, nor desire to make it large, I swear. The system cannot be changed with detentions, especially when hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions, are stealing around us. For me, an achievement will be to break those schemes, and evaluation will be the amount of returns to the budget," the prosecutor general said.
He also announced that 'a roll of offshore schemes' has been on his table since last week, which schemes involve MPs and other top officials.
"If this thick roll of offshore schemes, which has been on my table since last week, concerning MPs and other officials will in three or four months result in detentions, notices of suspicion, plea deals, and return of at least a part of the amount to the budget, I will believe we are acting right," Lutsenko said.
