International Monetary Fund promised their comprehensive assistance to the Ukraine’s National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) in checking abroad property and financial assets of the Ukrainian declarants, as they noticed discrepancies between the data published by mass media and the data entered in the e-declarations. The head of the NACP Natalia Korchak announced that on her Facebook page.
"IMF believes that the NACP’s attention should be mainly focused on checking data by the top-echelon administrators. Because “fish stinks from the head”. Thus, the IMF promised to comprehensively assist while checking abroad property and financial assets of the Ukrainian declarants,” wrote Natalia Korchak.
According to her, Emmanuel Mathias. Sr. Financial Sector Expert at International Monetary Fund, noted that the Fund is “keeping a close eye on the situation on Ukraine”. And they saw a certain inconsequentiality in e-declarations of certain e-declarations of top-officials – the assets described by the international media are absent in electronic register now.
Korchak supposed that cooperation with international anti-corruption organizations may become the most significant instrument in exposing Ukrainian crooked state officers.
