Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine approved the bill No. 1010 on the denouncers of corruption.

According to the law, the denouncer is a person who has reported possible corruption or corruption-related offenses - if such information became known to him/her as the result of his/her professional, economic, social, scientific activities, her military service, educational work or its participation in the procedures required by law to commence such activities.

A denouncer who reported a corruption crime has a right for remuneration in case the sum of it or the damage it caused to the state exceeds the amount of the subsistence minimum for able-bodied persons five thousand or more times (as of the beginning of the current year – 386,749 dollars).
