The publication is dedicated to the Constitutional Court of Ukraine's decision, which paralyzed the National Agency's critical activities for preventing corruption and declared unconstitutional criminal liability for knowingly false declarations. The decision caused a considerable resonance, as the declared reasons for its adoption were insufficient to admit that the crucial provisions of the Law ‘On Prevention of Corruption’ regarding electronic asset declaration, financial control, and lifestyle monitoring are entirely unconstitutional.
