Protection in cases of corruption offenses

Got a protocol? Do you doubt whether it is worth suing?

We will analyze the documents and give an honest answer.


What are the consequences of being prosecuted for committing an administrative offense related to corruption?

In addition to the fine, most articles provide for deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities for up to one year. 

Is the information about bringing to administrative responsibility for a corruption offense confidential?

No, as such information is entered into the Unified State Register of Persons Who Have Committed Corrupt or Corruption-Related Offenses.
Information about the surname, name, patronymic is open; place of work, position at the time of committing a corruption or corruption-related offense; composition of the offense; type of punishment; the manner of committing a disciplinary misdemeanor; type of disciplinary sanction.

Who can be prosecuted for committing an administrative offense related to corruption?

These are persons authorized to perform the functions of the state or local self-government, as well as persons who are equated to them.

How to calculate the amount of the fine for committing a corruption administrative offense?

Fines are calculated in non-taxable minimum incomes. For the purposes of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses, one tax-free minimum income of citizens is 17 UAH.

For example, for submission of knowingly unreliable information in the declaration of a person authorized to perform the functions of the state or local government (Part 4 of Article 172-6 of the Code of Administrative Offenses), the fine is from UAH 17,000 to UAH 34,000.

ARE THERE REASONS for release from liability in case of committing a corruption offense?

Thus, Article 22 of the Code of Administrative Offenses stipulates that in case of insignificance of the committed administrative offense, the body (official) authorized to decide the case may release the violator from administrative liability and limit itself to oral remarks. The advantage of insignificance is that you will avoid paying the fine and the court will rule to close the case. The downside is that in this case the court must find the person guilty of committing a corruption administrative offense.


The prosecutor has no right to appeal against a decision on a corruption administrative offense.

Despite the lack of authority, prosecutors still file appeals, as evidenced by case law
