Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed a law to pay 10 percent of confiscated money to those reporting corruption-related crimes to the authorities.

The Ukrainian presidency in a statement reported by the channel “Russia Today” space on Wednesday evening, that the document would create a new system to prevent corruption in the country based on the standards of international integrity.

The law “defines the legal status of whistleblowers, that is the persons who have filed reports of corruption or corruption-related offenses”, it added.

New law stipulates that the right to remuneration belongs to a citizen who has reported to the relevant authorities for a crime of corruption whose material damage to the state exceeds 5,000 times or more the cost of living in the country, about 9.6 million Hryvn or about $387,000.

New Ukrainian law will apply on January 01, next year
