Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has approved Resolution №3358 on the establishment of the Temporary Investigatory Commission that will investigate into the facts of possible corruption actions conducted by officials of public authorities, which have led to significant losses of the revenue part of Ukraine’s State Budget. 324 MPs voted in favor. 112 Ukraine TV channel hosted the online broadcast.
"The purpose of the draft resolution's adoption is to investigate into the facts of possible corruptive actions of the state authorities' officials that have been published in the mass media and have led to the lack of the revenue part of Ukraine’s State Budget," the explanatory note reads.
As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine's National Agency for Prevention of Corruption, not a single Ukrainian political party asked to relieve it of the state funding.
Previously, Servant of the People party claimed it would refuse from state funding of the party's activity in 2020, which is foreseen by the law.
The overall sum allocated for the state funding of political parties in 2020 makes roughly 7.5 million U.S. dollars.
