to liquidate the former OBKhSS (Department Against Misappropriation of

as well as to eliminate the economic division within the Security Service of
Ukraine as these are not their functions, it’s important to complete
elimination of the tax police and to create a single professional Financial
Investigation Service. I mean to replace these 3-4 authorities with one
effective, professional service. We expect to agree on this issue in the near
feature. I have already initiated this topic and aftermath we will be able to
adopt a relevant decision. I prefer this issue would be solved within several
months”, underscored the Prime Minister
