The representatives of the IMF Mission had a meeting with the authorities of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine. The topic for the discussion was the fight against corruption in Ukraine, as the press service of NABU reported.
In particular, they discussed the possibilities of strengthening NABU as the institution of the pre-trial investigation. The official also touched upon the problems concerning the granting NABU the right to use information from the communication channels, criminal responsibility for illegal enrichment and conducting an audit of the institution.
“We are grateful to the IMF for the constant attention to the fight against corruption, and for the support of the anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine,” NABU Head Artem Sytnyk said.
As we reported earlier, the IMF will continue to cooperate with Ukraine, but the action will most likely not resume until the early parliamentary elections in this country are over. IMF press office director Gerry Rice said this as quoted by UNN news agency.
'As soon as the new government is shaped after the election, we'll be ready to get back to discussing our further cooperation with Ukraine', he claimed.
Rice added that the Fund's mission is currently working in Ukraine.
