In 2019 the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) for the first time was involved in the verification of declarations for Ukrainian presidential candidates. According to NAPC, as of January 29th 23 declarations were checked, and mistakes and inaccuracies were made in all of them. This was reported by the press service of NAPC.
Thus, the declarations of the following candidates have already been checked: Valentin Nalyvaichenko, Igor Shevchenko, Sergey Kaplin, Vitaly Skotsik, Andrey Sadovoy, Vitaly Kupry, Evgeny Murayev, Anatoly Gritsenko, Gennady Balashov, Olga Bogomolets, Roman Nasirov, Aleksandr Shevchenko, Yury Boyko, Oleg Lyashko, Ilya Kiva, Aleksandr Vilkul, Yuliya Tymoshenko, Dmitry Dobrodomov, Ruslan Koshulinsky, Arkady Kornatsky, Aleksandr Moroz, Aleksandr Danilyuk, and Igor Smeshko.
The data provided by Sergey Taruta, Vladimir Zelensky, and also Inna Bogoslovskaya is being verified. NAPC is given three days to verify data. It uses information that is available to the agency and in ten databases.
According to NAPC, mistakes and inaccuracies were found in all checked declarations. Specifications and amendments after the checking of documents were made by Valentin Nalyvaichenko, Igor Shevchenko, Sergey Kaplin, Vitaly Skotsik, Andrey Sadovoy, Vitaly Kupry, Gennady Balashov, Aleksandr Shevchenko, Yury Boyko, Oleg Lyashko, Ilya Kiva, Dmitry Dobrodomov, Ruslan Koshulinsky, and Aleksandr Danilyuk.
Most often the mistakes consist of the candidate not specifying the cadastral numbers of real estate objects, noting down vehicles that are absent in registers, or not specifying their identification numbers. In addition, they often do not specify their corporate rights in enterprises that are in a state of termination, but haven’t yet stopped, or they don’t specify the legal entities that they are a final beneficial owner of.
