Among others, the registry contains income statements submitted by the Ukrainian president, the prime minister, and the Verkhovna Rada speaker.

The Internet-based Unified State Registry of State Officials' Declarations was launched at the second attempt in September after a two-week delay. The registry had to be fixed several times for technical reasons after its kickoff while the officials were forced to re-submit their income statements. There have also been reports of cyber attacks on the system.
