Effective work of the NABU is impossible without an Anti-Corruption Court - the U.S. Department of State

During the first years of investigations Ukrainian newly created anti-corruption agencies have shown valuable results, however further effective work of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) is impossible without establishment of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Court. This issue was brought up and later on discussed by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk and by the Head of the SAPO Nazar Kholodnitskiy at the meeting with the Deputy Assistant Secretary in the State Department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs Bridget A. Brink, which took place on December 8.

Bridget A. Brink confirmed that the United States will continue to support the work of anti-corruption bodies and to implement anti-corruption reform in Ukraine.

It should be reminded that on December 4-8, 2017, the delegation of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine headed by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk took part in the Global Forum on Asset Recovery in Washington, DC. During the visit the NABU employees met with representatives of the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Department of State.
