The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) has proved that Ukraine continues to fight corruption. Its investigations of large-scale corruption cases at big State Enterprises and the facts of exposing the illegal activities of top-level officials are the best proof. These are the reasons Ukrainians from all over the world support the activities of the NABU, and the governments of foreign states support the idea of establishment of the High Specialized Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine. This institution is to become the final accord in all the cases, conducted by other anti-corruption authorities.  This was emphasized by Eugene Czolij, the President of the World Congress of Ukrainians (UWC), during his visit to the NABU, which took place on August 31, 2017. 

 

«At many international forums, we are talking about positive changes in Ukraine, mentioning the results of the NABU. Of course, without fair sentences, your work cannot be completed,» said Eugene Czolij.

According to him, the UWC will call on governments of the states, where Ukrainian Diaspora is represented, in order to remind the Ukrainian authorities of their promise to establish an independent Anti-Corruption Court.

In turn, the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk expressed his hope for further support and cooperation with the Congress.

«From the very beginning we understood that it was not to be easy, and we were ready to stand our ground», said the NABU Director.

The meeting was also attended by the First Deputy Director of NABU Gizo Uglava, the Director of the UWC Mission to International Organizations in Brussels Marina Yaroshevich, President of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress Paul M. Grod.
