Press Release


In December 2017, the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) granted access on 22 occasions to items and documents for the purpose of investigating criminal offences committed in the banking sector. Access was also provided upon request of:


      the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine – on 7 occasions;


      the National Police of Ukraine – on 6 occasions;


      the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine  – on 6 occasions;


      the Security Service of Ukraine – on 2 occasions;


      the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine – on 1 occasion.


Overall, in 2017, the NBU provided law enforcement agencies with information for investigations of criminal offences committed in the banking sector on 152 occasions. Last year the NBU most actively cooperated with the General Prosecutor's office and the National Police of Ukraine.


It should be noted that in March 2015, the Ukrainian parliament passed the Law On Amendments to Certain Legal Acts of Ukraine on Responsibility of Bank's Related Parties, which introduced criminal liability of bank managers and holders for actions resulting in bank’s insolvency, and thereby causing great material damage to the state or creditors.
