As noted in KIU, this is data excluding monetary assets owned by wives and husbands of deputies, their joint funds, and also excluding borrowed funds. The funds available in foreign currency were transferred to the hryvnia equivalent during settlements.
“The declared billion of cash can have two logical explanations. The first is the distrust of members of the mono-majority in the Ukrainian banking system. The second, possible scheme of legalization of «black funds». So, MPs can declare significantly larger amounts in order to have an explanation for future shadow revenues, ”said KIU Chairman Alexei Koshel.
