In October 2020, Ukraine’s Constitutional Court ruled that the country’s National Agency on Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) could no longer publish the electronic asset declarations of government officials. The court also struck down the imposing of criminal liability on government officials who provide false information on these asset declarations.  The court’s decision represents a significant setback for government transparency advocates. The ruling may also negatively impact Ukraine - EU relations.
