The National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) has handed over two administrative protocols to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky over the failure to notify the authority of significant changes in his property status.
"On July 7, NACP Head Oleksandr Novikov drew up and handed over two protocols to the president over administrative violations (Article 172-6 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses). The relevant materials will be sent to court," NACP said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Zelensky personally informed NACP of the failure to notify the authority of significant changes in his property status.
"In 2019, the president's family received funds as redemption of government domestic loan bonds in the total amount of UAH 5.1 million (US$189,380) and spent UAH 5.2 million (US$193,093) on the purchase of government domestic loan bonds," the presidential press service said. "Accordingly, the value of these bonds exceeded 50 subsistence levels. According to the law, Volodymyr Zelensky had to submit notifications of significant changes in property status to the Register of Declarations within 10 days from the time of the purchase and sale of the bonds."
However, the register did not receive such notifications.
"Zelensky emphasizes that all citizens of Ukraine are equal before the law and is ready to bear responsibility for violations in accordance with current legislation," it said.
