About this he wrote on his page on social networks on Facebook.
"Corruption under the current government (the order of magnitude lower than before 2014), in many cases, was forced – mainly because the authorities had to steal, so with this money, at least in part, information and organizations of oligarchic information forces.
At the same time, Volokh itself is a member of many advisory boards under authority.
As reported by Ukrainian News, sduring the summer, only 4.5 thousand hryvnas were confiscated from corrupt officials.
Also, according to Süddeutsche Zeitung, Ukraine loses 4 billion euros every year due to customs corruption.
