Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has personally informed the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (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.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Zelensky on May 30 issued a declaration of assets, property, income, expenses and financial liabilities for 2019. According to the declaration, the incomes of Zelensky and his family members last year exceeded UAH 28.6 million, or US$1.06 million.
Also, the Zelensky family paid UAH 3.6 million, or US$133,680, in taxes to the budget.
The president disclosed the purchase of the government bonds in his declaration.
