The government-controlled Rada passed a law yesterday restoring prison terms for officials who hide assets — then President Zelenkiy said he would not sign it.

“This isn’t what Ukrainians expect, and not what I promised them,” he said on the presidential website. Critics say the bill does not check assets held by family members, a classic dodge for officials seeking to hide ill-gotten gains. A law on assets is seen as key to restoring Ukraine’s $5 billion Stand-By Arrangement. This agreement stalled after Ukraine received the first tranche, one year ago next week.
