Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak has said that the president's office does not put forward any initiatives to change Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Artem Sytnyk.
"The Office of the President did not offer any initiatives on the issue. We have received many questions about this last week. I know that there were some debates and consultations, and they event started collecting signatures in the parliament. But so far I know nothing about any bills on the issue being put on the parliament's agenda," he said during an online discussion on the subject: "Pandemic, Reform, War, and Peace: The View from Ukraine's White House" organized by the Atlantic Council on Monday, May 4.
