He told this in an interview with Reuters.

“The body responsible for verifying these declarations (NACP), just doesn’t work… This unpleasant circumstance, because the electronic Declaration would be a very effective tool of fight against corruption, but unfortunately, because this body was never created never actually started its work, this tool is under threat now,” said Sitnik.

In NACP statement Artem Sytnik did not comment.

Media reported that the national Agency for prevention of corruption began to destroy documents that may be evidence of falsification by employees of the Department of electronic declarations of officials.

It has found a correspondence through WhatsApp with the so-called “curator NACP” in the presidential Administration Alexei Gorshenkova.
