New budget article postpones electronic asset declaration system required for visa liberalization
A law on the state budget for 2016 has appeared to include a new provision, which postpones for one year the implementation of a new system of financial control required for the introduction of a visa-free travel with the EU, Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction and a member of the National Agency for Corruption Prevention (NACP), Viktor Chumak, wrote on Facebook.
Chumak noted that this system envisages an electronic declaration of all assets, including valuables and cash. According to Chumak, it is the new electronic declaration system, and not the actual launch of the NACP activities, that has been the main hurdle concerning the visa liberalization process.
