President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky proposes to amend the Law of Ukraine "On the Prosecutor's Office", as well as a number of other laws that will relate to changes in the names of prosecution authorities. The bill provides for the creation of the Office of the Prosecutor General, the abolition of military prosecutors and the post of Chief Military Prosecutor. Zelensky introduced bill No. 1032 for the Verkhovna Rada's consideration.

Among the main provisions of the new bill is the creation of a new structure of prosecution bodies: the Office of the Prosecutor General, regional prosecutors, district prosecutors. Zelensky proposes that the Office of the Prosecutor General be headed by the Prosecutor General, who will have the first deputy and deputies, as well as the Deputy Prosecutor General as the head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office.

Another important provision of the bill is the liquidation of military prosecutors, and, if necessary, the creation of specialized prosecutors for structural units of the Prosecutor General's Office, regional and district prosecutors.

It is also planned to reduce the number of employees in prosecution bodies from 15 to 10 000 people, but it is proposed to increase the salary of the prosecutor from 12 to 15 living wages.

The bill provides for the certification of existing prosecutors with a view to personnel reloading, as well as providing opportunities for employees who have the necessary experience and skills to take the position of prosecutor. Citizens of Ukraine who have a higher legal education and experience in this field for at least 5 years can be appointed to the post of general prosecutor.

Earlier Zelensky by order No. 638/2019 of August 29 appointed Ruslan Ryaboshapka as Prosecutor General of Ukraine.
