As reported, at the beginning of the full-scale war, the Verkhovna Rada suspended the process of mandatory asset declarations by officials, allowing them to submit data on their assets after martial law is lifted. At the same time, the NACP left open the possibility of voluntary submission of declarations.

At the end of July 2023, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading draft law No. 9534 on the restoration of electronic declaration during martial law.
