Joe Biden talked to Petro Poroshenko by phone and discussed the launch of e-declaration system
US Vice President Joe Biden greeted Ukraine with finishing the first stage of e-declaration. During a phone conversation with Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko he called e-declaring an important step in corruption fight. Politicians also discussed the situation in Donbas. Biden once again reiterated the importance of continuing sanctions against Russia - until it completes the Minsk agreements.
The anti-corruption agencies have announced, they will conduct a complete check of the documents, but the first results will not appear straight away. The examination of the declarations will be held in two stages.
Firstly, the agency will inquire whether the politicians provided the documents in time, as required by the law. This procedure is expected to take a week.
After that the institution will start the complete check of the declarations, examining whether their earnings go in line with their work.
If a suspicion of foul play emerges during the inquiries, then either the country's National Anti-Corruption Bureau or the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office will step in.
