  • astonishing results of international medicines procurements in 2016;

  • arrest of a notorious ex-official of the Prosecutor’s General Office;
  • plea bargain and court’s sabotage in the course of investigation of Onyshchenko’s gas fraud scheme;

Medicines Procurements


In spite of huge resistance and smear campaign organized by pharmmafia and certain political groups, on July 27 the Ministry of Health signed contracts with international organizations for procurements of medicines in 2017.

This enables the UNDP, the UNICEF and British Agency “Crown Agents” to continue their successful work in saving millions UAH of public funds. More details

Last chance to save new Supreme Court?

#challenges. Though new approaches to selection of the Supreme Court judges looked promising, the results are frustrating: 30 tainted judges out of 120 selected pronounce a verdict to judicial system renewal, which was supposed to be a key goal of the reform.

The last chance to save the new Supreme Court lies in the hands of the High Council of Justice and the President. Will Ukraine use it? More details.

NABU and SAPO Detained Notorious Ex-Official of the Prosecutor's General Office in Boryspil Airport

Dmytro Sus, a scandalous official of the Prosecutor’s General Office, involved in persecutions of Vitaliy Kasko, David Sakvarelidze and AntAC, was detained by NABU and SAPO in Boryspil airport when he tried to flee the country. However, instead of arresting Mr. Sus on July 27 the court obliged him to stay under home arrest for two months. More details.

Consideration of Onyshchenko's Gas Fraud Scheme

Consideration of Onyshchenko’s gas fraud case moves on with mixed success: while one of the suspects signs plea bargain and agrees to compensate 30 million UAH to the state, another one is groundlessly released by the court of appeal, which ruled to cancel his preventive measure in the form of detention. More details on first and second cases.
