The declarant shall be obliged to provide information on his expenses, as well as on the expenses of his family members for each transaction - on the acquisition of a real estate object, vehicle, securities, shares, shares in the authorized capital of legal entities, if the transaction amounts exceed the total income of the declarant and its members family (close relatives) for the two years preceding the transaction, and the sources of funds from which the transaction was concluded.
