The National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) has begun publishing a list of individuals, both current and former officials, who will avoid responsibility for declaring inaccurate information as a result of the October 27 Constitutional Court's resonance ruling. The NAPC press service reported this.
“Today we publish the names of people who will succeed in avoiding responsibility for declaring inaccurate information due to the decision of the Constitutional Court. This is just the beginning. We will continue to publish the names of people who were helped by the Constitutional Court to avoid punishment. They are directors of state-owned enterprises, government officials - all those who were hired by taxpayers,” the statement reads.
In the list there are:

- Deputy of the Odesa City Council Oleg Etnarovych, who lowered the value of real estate, which he owns by 165,000 dollars and did not specify corporate rights for 73.8 thousand U dollars, and also “forgot” that he borrowed and placed in bank accounts over 35,000 dollars;
- Deputy of the Volodymyr-Volyn City Council Ruslan Moroz, who lowered the value of real estate by 14,000 dollars, and also “forgot” that he lent 755,5 thousand dollars to third parties.
The head of the Constitutional court Oleksandr Tupytsky in 2018 became the owner of the land plot in the town of Koreiz of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, having drawn up the contract of sale under the Russian legislation.
Tupytsky concluded the contract of purchase and sale of land in Crimea under the legislation of the Russian Federation, it was certified by the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography of Russia. Even though, the legislation restricts Ukrainian officials from “interacting with illegal bodies established in the temporarily occupied territory.”
In addition, according to journalists, Tupytsky did not include information on the purchase of land in his declaration of property and income. Tupytsky’s declarations for 2018 and 2019 do not mention that he owns another real estate object.
On October 30, he explained why he did not enter the plot in the register, saying that he simply did not know how to do it.
