According to the court ruling, at the end of February, a statement was sent by mail with a report on criminal offenses allegedly committed by Parubiy, but the Bureau failed to open proceedings. Now the person who sent that report went to court and Kyiv's Solomensky court took the plaintiff's side, obliging NABU to open proceedings.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy filed a tax declaration stating UAH 550,000 (US$20,507) and over US$42,000 in cash for 2018.
