      Coronovirus and declaring

      Civil servants should thank the coronovirus for extending the declaration period in 2020.
      The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, among measures aimed at preventing the occurrence and spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), slightly changed the deadline for filing declarations by officials in 2020.
      So, only in 2020, officials must file declarations for the past year before June 1, instead of April 1. Corresponding amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On the prevention of corruption” entered into force.
      At the same time, legislative amendments that were introduced only for 2020 stipulate that officials who are released and before June 1, 2020 were not able to file a declaration for a period not covered by the previously filed declaration, as well as officials who should have reported significant changes in property status in accordance with Section 52 of the Law on the prevention of corruption, in connection with the establishment of quarantine-restrictive measures in the territory of their residence, are exempted from liability oevremennoe submission of such a declaration or communications omlennya during this period.
      Ground of decision: Law of Ukraine of March 17, 2020 № 530-IX;

      State architectural and construction inspectorate

      It is unfortunate that the Cabinet of Ministers has been updated on the basis of Denys Shmyhal, stating about the liquidation of the State architects and inspection. A month of monopoly in the sphere of public spending May take three new central organizations of power:
      - State urban planning service;
      - State agency for technical regulation in urban planning;
      - State inspectorate of urban planning.
      Whether the new government will be able to overcome corruption in the field of urban development, and what should be done so that the authorities do not turn into an updated version of the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate again, Tarasov & Partners managing partner, lawyer Andrey Tarasov commented on VoiceUA.

      “Maintenance” of deputies

      Have you ever seen the periodic reports of the Verkhovna Rada on the amount of budget funds spent on the “maintenance” of deputies?
      If not, a small spoiler: the amounts are cosmic. And a significant part of them are expenses on deputy business trips. It seems that all our civil servants stop in the presidential rooms of Hilton and Ritz-Carlton, dine in Michelin-starred restaurants and fly with private jets (even to Zhytomyr).
      Why are our deputies so expensive for citizens? Are there any effective mechanisms for controlling their costs? These questions were answered by managing partner, lawyer Andrey Tarasov in a commentary to the VoiceUA publication.

      Chanson in minibuses

      Perhaps the time is not so far away when jokes about chanson, as the favorite musical genre of minibus drivers, will lose their relevance.
      Recently, the Verkhovna Rada registered a bill banning acoustic violence (more precisely, amendments to the Law “On Road Transport”), which provides for a ban on including music in public transport, passengers do not like.
      And although the majority of citizens who use the “minibuses” breathed a sigh of relief after such news, some still found concern, not a similar initiative, by restricting their own rights.
      About the details of this bill and why the ban on acoustic violence is cool and lawful, said GolosUA, managing partner of Tarasov & Partners, lawyer Andrey Tarasov.
