President Petro Poroshenko is slowly strangling Ukraine’s only independent law enforcement agency, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine. To do so, Poroshenko needs loyal auditors who will assess the NABU and recommend firing its leadership as a result.

One of these auditors, Mykhailo Buromensky, was appointed by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, a presidential loyalist, by stealth at a late-night Cabinet meeting on May 26, when many Ukrainians were either relaxing at home, in bars or restaurants, or heading to their dachas.

Two other auditors have yet to be appointed. They will be nominated by the Verkhovna Rada and Poroshenko himself.
