"The judicial branch is not ready to consider corruption cases. There's a need to create an anti-corruption court," he said.

Speaking about the number of cases that NABU is considering, Sytnyk said: "On average, there are about 400 cases, and now we have 620 employees out of 700. In the near future, several detectives will be appointed, that is, the staff is almost complete. All departments have been launched, and cases are under investigation.

"Every day, investigative activities are conducted. This process is gaining serious momentum because we constantly increase the number of people, these people provide constant internal communication and, accordingly, our resources are constantly growing, and new investigations start. But again, we return to the fact that these cases are sabotaged in courts," he said.
