The head of Zaporizhzhya region Kostyantyn Bryl, despite the direct demand of the law, for some reason decided not to submit
the declaration on income in 2015. Before appointment to this position, he held the position of the SBU counterintelligence officer. Thus he wanted to release himself from submitting the declaration later.
Activists sent the appeal
to the NACP with the request to verify the legitimacy of actions of the official. The department stated that they did not have any claims regarding Bryl, but confirmed that he held two positions (the head of the Regional State Administration and the employee of the SBU). This is the violation of the law.
Only after lawsuits and appeals from activists
to the President, as well as constant public pressure, Bryl was dismissed from the SBU and, at the same time, he submitted the declaration
. It turned out that Bryl is quite wealthy person, as for the person who has worked in state bodies all the time.
However, the head of Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration submitted not all his assets in the declaration. Later, journalists found that Bryl hid
5 luxury vehicles. Also, he spent
on vacations and studying of his children as much as the dollar millionaire usually spends.
