NABU Director


NABU Director Semen Kryvonos: "It's an honor for me to be part of this powerful team"

Semen Kryvonos, appointed on March 6 as the Director of the National Bureau, is set to preserve the independence of the Bureau and increase its efficiency. Addressing the staff, he noted: "It is an honor for me to be part of this powerful team. You have shown incredible results in 7 years of work. Therefore, the main task that I set before myself is to preserve the achievements and independence of the Bureau's staff, as well as to increase the efficiency of work."


Effective international cooperation is crucial in finding and recovering siphoned off assets - Artem Sytnyk

In six years, the National Bureau has sent 944 requests for international legal assistance to more than 75 countries. This indicates not only the spread of Ukrainian corruption in the world but also shows that without international cooperation the fight against corruption is impossible. 


NABU will appeal the KDAC decision, which legalizes full control over the work of the institution

The decision of the Kyiv District Administrative Court on the activities of the National Bureau and the NABU Director is biased and meaningless in a legal sense. Its real goal is to block the work of NABU, which exposed the judges of the KDAC for large-scale abuses and an attempt to seize power.


Artem Sytnyk remains in the position, NABU operates normally

For the first time in the history of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine considered the issue of the constitutionality of an act of individual action, despite the opposite previous long-term judicial practice. However, the fact that the Presidential Decree on Appointment on the NABU Director is declared unconstitutional does not terminate the powers of the NABU Director or any other person who is appointed by the President, and does not automatically mean his dismissal. Until the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopts the amendments to the legislation, Artem Sytnyk has the right to exercise his powers as the NABU Director. Therefore, currently NABU is operates normally.
