The inclusion of the anti-corruption activists to the list of people, who should file the electronic declarations, is recognized as unconstitutional. The decision of the Constitutional Court is final and cannot be appealed.

Earlier the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law “On prevention of corruption” with a norm, which obliges the military to file the electronic declarations. After a while, the initiative arose to remove this norm. MP Tatiana Chornovol filed the amendment on the obligatory declaration for the representatives of the public organizations. The document was adopted with this amendment.

Up to April 1, 2018, the representatives of the public organizations, which fight against corruption, had to fill the electronic declarations. Criminal responsibility is provided if the document is not filed.

The international partners noted the inadmissibility of this norm for many times.
