There are // bodies in focus of our committee scan today:

 

Committee on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction

The committee met with representatives of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative in (EUACI), Eka Tkeshelashvili, the head of the programme, and Klemens Muller, a senior counselor of the programme.

The working meeting was devoted to deliberations on the draft Anti-corruption strategy law for the period of 2018-2020.

The parties exchanged their views on a future roundtable to be convened for the purpose of coordinating actions aimed at developing a well-balanced document - the State Anti-Corruption Policy Program in Ukraine (The Anti-Corruption Strategy) for 2018-2020.

The draft strategy law recently filed up by the Cabinet was said to be the underlying instrument designed to frame the state policy to this effect for the years immediately ahead.

It was also observed, there is a severe need in having parliamentary hearings on the issue yearly, pursuant to the provisions of the anti-corruption law, providing hereby a firm and open footing for reporting on the progress in the anti-corruption strategy.

In the course of the meeting, the sides also discussed a number of other anti-corruption issues, and in particular, the performance report of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) conducted at the request of international partners.

Particular attention was paid to personal profiles of those parliamentary probables applied to be afterwards singly selected as the member of an independent audit board busied with the NABU’s activity.

 

Committee on State Building, Regional Policy and Local Self-Government

The committee commends the Parliament to sustain the Kyiv regional council’s application to re-designate the city of Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi into the city of Pereiaslav.

It was underlined that the Institute of Ukrainian Language of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine states that the return of the designation Pereiaslav does not violate the current Ukrainian spelling and corresponds to the ongoing practice of restoring historical names of settlements, and the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance also supports this re-designation proposal for Pereiaslav.

Regaining its historical name by the city shall help regenerate the national memory of Ukrainian society, as well as overcome historical myths about "the primordial desire of the Ukrainian people to rejoin the Russian people", embodied in the "reunification of Ukraine and Russia" at the Pereiaslav Council in 1654.

The city re-naming issue had been supported by the territorial community at public hearings, and later on lawfully agreed, reviewed and properly approved by the city and the regional councils.

The committeemen endorsed the city re-designation resolution and commissioned parliamentarians-committee members to make and table up the appropriate paper for further consideration by the Parliament.
