Kiev Tax Protest

KIEV -- Ukraine's largest banking union and several business associations demanded Thursday that tax authorities revoke an order requiring banks to provide detailed information about some of their accounts.

"The State Tax Administration of Ukraine increasingly violates citizens' legal rights for conducting business,'' the bankers and businessmen said in a letter.

Ukrainian banks were outraged when tax authorities told them to disclose transaction records for accounts of suspected tax-dodgers.
