The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) continues expand the range of strategic partners at the international level. The outcome of the fight against top-level corruption depends on a large extent on the effective interaction of the competent authorities of different countries. This was emphasized by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk at the international conference "Strengthening transparency and accountability to ensure integrity: united against corruption". The event was held on October 15-16, 2018, in the Republic of Croatia.
About 30 persons, as the Detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) established, involved in the organization of corruption schemes, are currently hiding abroad. Almost 50% of them, according to the investigation, are hiding at the territory of the Russian Federation. This data was published at the Report on the NABU results during the first half of 2018.
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and the Estonian Center of Eastern Partnership (ECEAP) will exchange information and experience in the area of detection and investigation of corruption and corruption-related offences. The Memorandum on Cooperation was signed on June 6, 2017, in Kyiv by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk and the ECEAP Director Jaan Reinhold.
Thanks to the work of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau for the first time in Ukraine more than 100, 000, 000 UAH have already been returned to the state enterprise's accounts. This was underlined by the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk at the meeting with the diplomatic corps.
According to him, today 200 NABU Detectives are investigating more than 215 criminal proceedings and 36 cases are already in court. However, the judges do not hurry to pass sentences.
The establishment phase of NABU is a key step in fighting corruption and in overall Ukrainian reform process. One of the means through which the EU funded project “Support to Justice Sector Reforms in Ukraine” has contributed to the establishment of the Analytical Unit within NABU is provision of international expertise on intelligence analysis with the purpose of supporting the operationalization of the Unit, as essential instrument in corruption investigations and decision making process.
