SBU to weed out ex-KGB and corrupt Yanukovych appointees
18.11.2014 | 14:37 UNIAN

Ukraine’s SBU state security service on Tuesday announced plans to weed former KGB members and corrupt appointees of ousted former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych from its ranks.

SBU Chief Valentyn Nalyvaychenko told journalists at the press conference in Kyiv that the security service had created a public council to help it in the task, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"People who worked at the Committee for State Security (the Soviet-era KGB) and those who committed corrupt actions under the regime of the ex-President Viktor Yanukovych will be subject to lustration," he said, citing Ukraine’s new “lustration law” on rooting out corruption in government.

The Security Service of Ukraine will start the lustration check from November 23, Nalyvaychenko said.

"Since I was appointed the head of the SBU, more than 2,500 employees, including 108 executives, have been fired from the [security] service," he added. SBU to weed out ex-KGB and corrupt Yanukovych appointees : UNIAN news

SBU chief says 82 cases against the Yanukovych inner circle are completed
Nov. 18, 2014, 5:45 p.m. | Kyiv Post+, Olena Goncharova

Ukraine’s Security Service chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said that his agency has completed investigation of 82 cases related to Ukraine's former top officials, including fugitive president Viktor Yanukovych.

The SBU reported they have tracked the officials' assets and accounts and handed the information to the general prosecutor’s office, Nalyvaichenko said during a news conference in Kyiv on Nov. 18.

The prosecutor's office opened dozens of criminal cases against Yanukovych and his inner circle after their escape from Ukraine in the wake of the EuroMaidan revolution in February.

"The bank accounts, securities, other assets totaling more than Hr 6.2 billion and $1.8 billion, and the movables and real estate of former senior officials have been confiscated in order to compensate the state for the losses," General Prosecutor Vitaliy Yarema was quoted as saying by the Ukrainian newspaper Dzerkalo Tyzhnia (Weekly Mirror) on Nov. 17.

Previously, Ukraine's officials estimated that Yanukovych stole some $70 billion in assets from Ukraine in three years of his presidency.

Nalyvaichenko says he hopes to see those Yanukovych and other officials on trial some day, but said the SBU will focus mostly on bringing their property back to Ukraine. He said the agency will also collect materials to ask for extradition of these officials from other countries.

"However, the question of extraditing these people, it's just a matter of time," Nalyvaichenko says. Most people from Yanukovych's inner circle found shelter in neighboring Russia, which has no extradition agreement with Ukraine.

Nalyvaichenko also said that his agency is sensing the help of the hackers in countering terrorism in Ukraine, and thanked them for cooperation. Earlier, Ukraine’s hacker Eugene Dokukin of so-called Ukrainian Cyber Forces claimed that his group blocked around $1 billion on the accounts of Russia-backed separatists during the last five months.

Recently the group blocked webmoney accounts of the activists of so-called Kharkiv People’s Republic, the separatist movement in Ukraine's second-largest city.

“This is how we stopped financing the terrorism,” Dokukin posted on his Facebook page on Nov. 17. “Ukrainian Cyber Forces attacked the separatists again. Since June we have blocked $1 billion on at least 128 terrorists' accounts,” according to the post. SBU chief says 82 cases against the Yanukovych inner circle are completed

Lie Detector Tests for Politicians, At Least In Ukraine
By Polly Mosendz 11/18/14 at 5:44 PM NEWSWEEK

Stepan Poltorak, the defense minister of Ukraine, took a polygraph test along with nine other officials today. The test was conducted before a meeting between the president, Poltorak and a group of leaders from volunteer organizations who help maintain the Ukrainian military. The volunteer leaders are in charge of helping maintain the clothing, food and medical system for the Defense Ministry.

The tests are part of a larger effort to rid the Ukrainian government of corruption. On October 23, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed several anti-corruption laws. The laws create an anti-corruption bureau which will investigate top Ukrainian officials. The bureau’s director is limited to serving one, seven-year term to further prevent corruption. The 700 employees at the bureau may also be subject to lie detector tests during the hiring process. All those in charge of public spending must take polygraph tests, starting with Poltorak and his volunteers.

“We will mercilessly fight corruption in the Defense Ministry. We will not let anyone line one's pockets, especially in the Defense Ministry, which performs the sacred mission of defending the independence and territorial integrity of our state,” Poroshenko said in a statement. During today’s meeting, nine out of 12 volunteer leaders passed the test successfully, as did Poltorak. The president’s press office did not clarify if the remaining three leaders took the test and failed or were unable to take the test.

In addition to setting up polygraph tests, Poroshenko praised the volunteers in attendance for their work with the ministry. “The council of volunteers has made the work of the Defense Ministry more open and efficient, which has significantly improved the material maintenance of troops. Due to your activity, we are now having a different army in comparison to the beginning of September,” the president told them. http://www.newsweek.com/ukraine-petr...etector-285397

Poroshenko sees foreigner as head of National Anti-Corruption Bureau

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has proposed appointing a foreigner as head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.

"I have a concrete proposal for all those involved in the appointment of the head of this extremely important institution [the Anti-Corruption Bureau]. I propose inviting to this post a person from outside Ukraine," he said in an extraordinary address on Ukraine's domestic and international situation at the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday.

"He will have an advantage – no connections in the Ukrainian political elite," Poroshenko said.

Good idea.

Ukraine's Supreme Court starts lustration checks on judges

Judges in Ukraine's Supreme Court will come under lustration checks in compliance with the law on lustration, the court's press service told Interfax-Ukraine.

Supreme Court Chairman Yaroslav Romaniuk has issued a directive obliging judges to hand in filled questionnaires between December 1 and 10, which will be further referred for checks to the justice and interior ministries, the State Financial Service and the Security Service.

The judges' statements and income and property declarations, and the results of the lustration checks will be posted on the Supreme Court's official website.

Only newly employed judges will be checked now. The staff employed earlier will be questioned in the summer of 2015.

The Ukrainian Supreme Court on November 20 filed an inquiry with the Constitutional Court on whether individual provisions of the Law on the Purges of the Government complied with the constitution. The inquiry will be processed by the Constitutional Court's secretariat before a relevant case is opened.
