The amendments to the legislative acts of Ukraine on certain issues of disclosure of banking secrecy and measures to establish guardianship over the property of an individual declared missing or a person missing under special circumstances, No. 9235, are to be considered.  

The draft law was developed by the Ministry of Reintegration. The Government’s position was presented at the plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada on 23 May by Roman Usenko, Deputy Minister for TOT Reintegration.
