The ambassadors of the G7 countries are alarmed by the recent decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to repeal anti-corruption reforms, according to a statement posted on the Twitter account of the G7 ambassadors.

"The G7 Ambassadors are alarmed by efforts to undo the anti-corruption reforms that followed the Revolution of Dignity. We stand with the Ukrainian people as they continue to fight to realize their aspiration of a prosperous and democratic Ukraine. Too much progress has been made, Ukraine must not go back to the past," the statement reads.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on October 29 convened an urgent meeting of the National Security and Defense Council to determine measures for the immediate proper response of the state to new threats and challenges to national security and defense.

The Constitutional Court on October 27 declared unconstitutional Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, which provides for penalties for incorrect information in asset declarations.

The article provides for liability in the form of a fine or imprisonment for the submission of deliberately inaccurate information in asset declarations by persons authorized to perform the functions of the state or local government.

On October 28, the National Agency on Corruption Prevention(NACP)closed access to the register of asset declarations in pursuance of the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.

In August 2020, 47 MPs submitted a motion to the Constitutional Court regarding the constitutionality of the provisions of the laws that make up the so-called anti-corruption platform. The issue concerns electronic asset declaration, special confiscation and updated Article 368-5 of the Criminal Code that provides for criminal liability for illicit enrichment.

The lawmakers challenged certain provisions of the laws "On Preventing Corruption," "On the Prosecutor's Office," "On the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine," "On the State Bureau of Investigation," "On the Asset Recovery and Management Agency," the Criminal Code, and the Civil Procedure Code.

The NAPC said that the judges of the Constitutional Court had made this decision in their own interests, as the agency found signs of several judges declaring false information in their asset declarations.

At the same time, the President's Office said that President Volodymyr Zelensky would use his right of a legislative initiative to restore the sustainable and most effective operation of the electronic asset declaration system and ensure the inevitability of liability for intentional violations of these rules.
