    Last week, former Chairman of the Ukrainian State Financial Inspection Nikolai Gordienko, who was previously dismissed, issued a report in which he accused Yatsenyuk of concealing corruption schemes of the previous government.

    MP Sergei Kaplin, a member of the largest faction in the Ukrainian parliament — "Petro Poroshenko Bloc" — suggested creating a special commission in Verkhovna Rada – Ukraine’s Parliament – to investigate the activities of the current Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who was accused of concealing corruption schemes.

    The relevant draft resolution was registered on Monday. The official text of the document has not yet been released on the website of the Parliament.

    Last week, former Chairman of the State Financial Inspection Nikolai Gordienko released a report in which he accused Yatsenyuk of concealing corruption schemes of the previous government. According to Gordienko, it is a matter of billions of dollars.

    Gordienko asked the General Prosecutor of Ukraine to investigate the case and suspend Yatsenyuk until the check-up is completed.

    Yatsenyuk’s party "People’s Front" has currently rejected all accusations brought.
