Activists and lawmakers on March 20 protested in front of the Verkhona Rada against attempts to appoint an auditor of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) who is allegedly loyal to President Petro Poroshenko and his gray cardinals Ihor Kononenko and Oleksandr Hranovsky.

The appointment of the auditor, Nigel Brown, is seen as an effort by Poroshenko and his allies to restrict the bureau’s independence and potentially fire its chief, Artem Sytnyk. The bureau’s chief can be dismissed as a result of an audit.
