The Great 7 agreed with the conclusions and recommendations of the Venice Commission on e-declaration for anti-corruption activists and international members of the supervisory boards of state companies and urged Ukraine to comply with them. This was reported in Twitter by the Canadian Chair of the G7 Ambassadors’ Support Group in Kyiv.
(1/2) E-declaration requirements for anti-corruption activists and international SOE supervisory board members are not consistent with Ukraine’s international obligations and best practices, negatively affect international assistance and obstruct the fight against corruption.— G7AmbReformUA (@G7AmbReformUA) 20 марта 2018 г.
The message clarifies that the requirements of mandatory e-declaration for anti-corruption and international observers do not comply with Ukraine's international obligations, cut it off from international assistance and hamper the fight against corruption in the country.
(2/2) G7 firmly stands behind the recommendations of the Venice Commission to cancel the requirements and looks forward to a legislative solution that implements these recommendations or postpones application of the law by April 1.— G7AmbReformUA (@G7AmbReformUA) 20 марта 2018 г.
As it was reported earlier EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini said that Ukraine needs to double its work in key areas, including in the fight against corruption. According to Mogherini, another important step is "to make sure that the declarations of assets of high-ranking officials and public figures are really being analyzed."
She added that the EU "also expects the reform of the electronic declaration system to allow civil society and public organizations to carry out their work."
