Before being appointed as General Prosecutor, in May – August Riaboshapka was a deputy chief of staff for the recently elected President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky[1] being responsible for its legal department and relationships of the President with courts.[2]

Riaboshapka is better known for his resignation from the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption (NAZK) back in 2017[1] when several members of the agency resigned during a crisis.[3][4] While a member of NAZK since 2016, he called for re-launching of the agency and appointing new leadership, due to its poor task performance over checking the electronic asset declarations.[1]

In 2013–2014 Riaboshapka for about six months worked for Transparency International Ukraine and then was a deputy minister of Justice of Ukraine.[5]
