Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine, stands for the cancellation of the collateral for corrupt officials who committed felonies. He said it on June 8 at the meeting with the students of Kyiv Taras Shevchenko National University, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.

“Today, the struggle against corruption in our country can be compared with fishing – caught, held, took a picture and let go…To hold is not enough for today. My principled position is the following – every sentence has to reach the court. The bribe taker has to appear on the dock,” the President stated.
