Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Tuesday he had vetoed a parliamentary bill that sought to retain closed asset declarations for officials.

Parliament voted last week on Tuesday to restore a declaration rule that was suspended after Russia's 2022 invasion as a security precaution, but - in an important loophole - to keep the disclosures closed to the public for another year.

"Declarations should be open. Immediately. Not in a year," Zelenskiy said on the Telegram messaging app.
