Quote: "I asked Vice Prime Minister Stefanishyna to hold consultations. After that, I will make a decision. There are two options."


Details: Thus the president replied to journalists in Kyiv to a question about whether he would sign a law or veto it.


  • On 5 September, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted bill №9587-d, which provides for punishing officials for untimely submitting of declarations for a sum over 1.3 million hryvnias (roughly US$35,212).
  • The National Agency for Preventing Corruption plans to request from the president to veto the bill 9587-d since it will keep the declarations closed for at least a year and stipulates that upon paying a fine, an individual who knowingly submitted unreliable documents in a declaration for a sum up to 1.3 million hryvnias (roughly US$35,212) will not be included in the Register of Corrupt Officials.
  • On 5 September, the Verkhovna Rada also adopted the bill 9534 about resuming online tax declaration for officials, but the declaration register will be opened in a year. The amendment about the immediate opening of the declarations did not gain the necessary number of votes.
  • The public demands President Zelenskyy to veto the bill 9534 in this form, though the resumption of the declaration is one of the key demands of the international partners of Ukraine.
