A respective bill, No. 4434, "On the Introduction of Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine to Restore Liability for Declaring Inaccurate Information and Failure to Submit a Declaration by a Person Authorized to Perform State or Local Self-Government Functions" has been published on the website of the Ukrainian parliament.

According to the explanatory note, the bill is aimed at establishing criminal liability for declaring inaccurate information and failure to submit a declaration by a person authorized to perform the functions of the state or local government.

It is proposed to delete Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, while supplementing it with a new Article 366-2 "Declaring inaccurate information," which establishes criminal liability in the form of a fine of 2,500 to 5,000 tax-free minimum incomes or community service for a period of 150 to 240 hours, or imprisonment for up to two years and the deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for up to three years.
