President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky urged the Ukrainians to report about the cases of corruption to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU), as he reported on Facebook.

“Dear Ukrainians I have often urged you to participate in some challenge or flash mob. Now, the time for the largest has come. Each citizen of Ukraine may participate. No video should be recorded for it, no hashtags should be put.  You need only one thing to do – to live according to the law. The way of Ukraine to success is the two-way road. We will not be able to revive the economy if people do not pay taxes. It concerns everyone – from oligarch to taxi driver. We will not be able to fight the corruption, if you close your eyes to it or become the partakers of the division of money. And now I appeal to the citizens: if people demand from you bribe, offer kickback or any other corruption scheme, please, do not be silent. You should not write on the social networks: “It's all gone. These officials are the same as the previous ones. Zelensky appointed his “problem solvers”. No. Here is a phone number. It is the hot line of the NABU. Call and report there. And the law enforcement bodies will respond and punish,” Zelensky stated.

Besides, the president reported that he signed the law on president’s impeachment.

“Let’s contribute our part and altogether become the founders and shareholders of new prospering Ukraine. I begin with myself. I sign the law on the impeachment of the president adopted by the parliament. Let’s prove to ourselves that the Ukrainians may live in another way. Live honestly and by law. Let’s do it together,” Zelensky added.

Earlier Zelensky signed the law on the Anti-Corruption Court. The law will take effect the day after its publication in the Holos Ukrainy newspaper, the official outlet of the Parliament.
