State Fiscal Service Chief Roman Nasirov was arrested as a suspect in a graft case by the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine on March 2, in the bureau’s biggest breakthrough to date.
Nasirov is the highest-ranking incumbent official to face charges since the EuroMaidan Revolution that ousted President Viktor Yanukovych on Feb. 22, 2014.
The only law enforcement agency not under the direct control of President Petro Poroshenko or his political allies, the bureau has been active for a little more than a year.
