On June 14, it became known that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky vetoed the law because, during its consideration, the deputies made changes to the procedure for declaring information on movable and immovable property owned or used by members of the declarant's family. According to the amendments, such property is indicated in the declaration if the declarant's family members have provided him with the relevant information.

Therefore, the Verkhovna Rada excluded this norm today.

Zelensky made another amendment to the document. He supplemented the rule that intentional failure to submit an e-declaration is punishable by a fine of $1,563 to $1,876 or community service for a period of 150 to 240 hours with deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for up to three years, "or restriction of liberty for up to two years, or imprisonment for a term of one year."
