Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko insists that parliament should abolish the mandatory electronic declaration for representatives of non-governmental organizations engaged in anticorruption activities.

"Petro Poroshenko insists that the Supreme Council and all its factions, without exception, must at last hear the arguments of the civil society, our partners, the head of state and take a responsible decision to abolish electronic declaration [requirement for anticorruption activists]," the press service of the presidential administration told Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday, 28 March.

Earlier, European Commissioner Johannes Hahn criticized the Ukrainian parliament for its failure to repeal an obligation for civil society activists to file asset declarations.
