The next stage tested the candidates’ knowledge of legislation, general skills and abilities, personal competencies, and ability to complete practical tasks. Based on the assessments, 21 candidates were invited to continue to the final interview stage.

The remaining candidates were interviewed on their integrity and their professional competencies. The committee selected Hupiak, Kryvonos, and Osypchuk as the top three.

"A strong anti-corruption system is important not only now, but its importance for society will only grow in the future when the country begins to rebuild after the war," said commission member Mykola Kucheriavenko.

"Therefore, the future Director of the NABU, representing the vision of the commission, is the best investigator, the best administrator of the investigative institution, and a leader with a vision of the future of the NABU who will lead a large team."
