In addition, the participants of the meeting elected Stanislav Patiuk as NACP deputy chairman.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the NACP candidate selection commission fully staffed the agency in December 2017. Chairman of Melitopol Regional State Administration Oleksandr Manhul and ex-employee of the Donetsk prosecutor's office and then legal assistant Stanislav Patiuk joined the then NACP chief Natalia Korchak, and two other NACP members, Oleksandr Skopych and Oleksandr Seriohin.

On January 17, the Cabinet of Ministers endorsed Patiuk and Manhul as members of the NACP.

On March 28, Korchak's tenure as head of the agency expired.

The NACP is a central agency of executive power, which is subordinate to the Cabinet of Ministers. It checks declarations of Ukrainian officials' income and their actual spending, and if it sees any violations, respective materials shall be sent to the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine.
