"According to the information available, one of the lawmakers received income in the amount of 600,000 hryvnia between 2001 and 2016. However, according to the electronic declaration for 2015, he owned nearly 22 million hryvnia (about $760,000).

"Given that such cases are not isolated, the Prosecutor General's Office instructed the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine to initiate ad hoc checks into 29 MPs in order to establish whether the declared funds were obtained legally, and whether the declarants and their tax agents have paid all the taxes owed to the budget in full," the agency said.
