The National Agency for Preventing Corruption (NAPC) reports a hacker’s attack on their network equipment which led to failures in online-support of the state officials applying their e-declarations. The Head of the NAPC Natalia Korchak wrote that on her Facebook page.

"We are fixing the DDoS attack on NAPC network equipment at the moment. This leads to failures in online-support of the applicants. Unfortunately, the mailing with the declarants, technical support and hotlines are blocked for now. We are very sorry for temporary inconveniences," she wrote.

Many officials and MPS have already claimed difficulties while applying the e-declaration, namely the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, Serhiy Leshchenko – the MP from Petro Poroshenko Block, and others.

As it was reported earlier, the e-declaration system was relaunched on September 1 after receiving a large number of complaints concerning the submit procedure and entering data into the register. The agency promised to eliminate the technical shortcomings in the electronic declaration system for officials in the nearest future.

The EU might not make the decision to implement visa-free regime with Ukraine in 2016, if the country’s authoritative bodies linger on implementation of digital declaration of officials’ incomes.
