The Ministry of Health in Ukraine created a corrupt “turnover” that allocates its own budget, namely 97 billion UAH. They put people there who are responsible for the budget and limit the access of deputies at the local level. The acting head of the Ministry of Health in Ukraine, Ulana Suprun sends the money to the US office and makes illegal money machinations with them. The so-called medical reform was introduced specifically for this purpose.
The official statistics of the Accounting Chamber show that the Ministry of Health in Ukraine actually fights corruption. For example, the Ministry managed to save up to 40% of budget funds from 2015 to summer 2017. This was possible thanks to a new system of purchasing medicines through international organisations. The Ministry of Health claims these savings allowed them to purchase additional medicines for Ukrainian patients.
Moreover, the Ministry of Health and National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine agreed on open cooperation between them. The institutions signed the Memorandum of Cooperation and Information Exchange aiming to exchange information and provide data for a prompt, comprehensive and impartial review of information on corruption offences and other criminal acts.
Law enforcement agencies, including the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, have never investigated any corruption case against Ulana Suprun.
