Draft law on preventing and combating corruption in Ukraine has been approved in second reading by 330 MPs with 409 registered in the Parliament session hall.

Approval of the bill was supported by most factions - the Party of Regions, Communist Party, People's Party, Party "Reforms for the Future" and some MPs from BYuT faction and OU-PSD.

Three articles and final provisions of the bill were sent for repeated second reading. After their review and approval the draft document will be submitted for consideration and adoption in general.

During the discussion of the bill, opposition MPs criticized the consideration of the document.

"This law is nothing but an imitation of a fight against corruption. You don't want to fight it, you are at the head of it, and you are quite happy with this," Our Ukraine-People's Self-Defense MP Arseniy Yatseniuk said during the discussion of the document.

He said that most of the amendments to the anti-corruption law proposed by the opposition had been rejected.

He said that the main provisions of the bill on the responsibility of senior officials had been excluded from the law. He said that this was a law "for fighting for corruption, rather than against it."
