Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has personally informed the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) of the failure to notify the authority of significant changes in his property status.
"In 2019, the president's family received funds as redemption of government domestic loan bonds in the total amount of UAH 5.1 million and spent UAH 5.2 million on the purchase of government domestic loan bonds," the presidential press service said. "Accordingly, the value of these bonds exceeded 50 subsistence levels. According to the law, Volodymyr Zelensky had to submit notifications of significant changes in property status to the Register of Declarations within 10 days from the time of purchase and sale of the bonds."
However, the register did not receive such notifications.
"Zelensky emphasizes that all citizens of Ukraine are equal before the law and is ready to bear responsibility for violations in accordance with current legislation," it said.
