In seven years of work, NABU has sent more than 1,000 international legal orders to 80 states. Meanwhile, without cooperation with law enforcement agencies within and outside the country, any investigation is doomed. This was stated by NABU Director Artem Sytnyk at the International Forum on Kleptocracy and Illicit Financial Flows, which is taking place in Kyiv on Dec. 1-2, 2021.
Decisions of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine aimed at decriminalizing the articles on e-declaration and illicit enrichment dealt a serious blow to anti-corruption reform, but failed to stop it. This was stated by NABU Director Artem Sytnyk at the Discussion "Constitutional crisis in Ukraine: a year later" attended, inter alia, by the leadership of the National Agency on Corruption Prevention, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau, and the High Anti-Corruption Court on Oct. 27, 2021.
The storm clouds gather over the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau, Artem Sytnyk. 216 Members of Parliament of Ukraine signed a draft resolution on his dismissal. In turn, G7 ambassadors released support statement for Artem Sytnyk.
“Corruption-related cases that involve senior officials of the Prosecutor General’s Office are in our investigative jurisdiction, and we will keep investigating these cases. Whatever incidents may arise, they can’t affect our position,” Artem Sytnyk, head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), tells bne IntelliNews in an exclusive interview in his Kyiv office.
