E-declaration system fails to operate

The State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine refuses to issue a security certificate to the new electronic income declaration system. The authority said that the system's developers haven't thoroughly debugged the system, making it difficult to meet government requirements concerning security.

As of August 16, less than 30 e-declarations were filed, mostly by middle class civil servicemen from different regions. The public officials did not tend to mention anything aside from their wages.

The online asset-declaring system was launched on Monday, August 15. However, it did not receive the security clearance needed from the State Service for Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine. This means that all information on the website is unprotected and thus cannot be accepted as valid evidence by court. Protected data is supposed to become one of the main tools to end corruption.
