The head of the propresidential Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction in parliament, Ihor Hryniv, has said he will recall the notorious bill on amendments to the Law of Ukraine "On prevention of corruption", in which he offered to classify some information in officials' income statements, Interfax-Ukraine has said.

In particular, he suggested that information about officials' cars, presents and available money should be classified.

"I had a difficult discussion with the president on the amendments to the Law of Ukraine 'On prevention of corruption' to prevent crimes against the life and health of a person and against property. I stand by my opinion that this law should be worked out and amended. But I have taken into account my discussion with the president and will recall this bill," he said.

He added he would do so because of the public outrage.

He is planning to initiate a public discussion after he is sure that there is "demand for such changes in the public ".
