After the start of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, the perpetrators refused to transport the company’s production facilities to the territory controlled by Ukraine.

They “re-registered” their own company in accordance with the requirements of “Russian legislation” and opened accounts in local “branches” of Russian banks.

According to the details, they left a “trusted person” in Severodonetsk, who supervised the work of the plant, and they themselves moved to Kyiv, from where they coordinated the conduct of business.

The finished products of the factory were sold through their own restaurant and an extensive network of sales points in the occupied part of eastern Ukraine.

At the same time, the received “profits” were regularly transferred to the budget of the aggressor country as “taxes” and “fees”.

In addition, they constantly paid “tribute” to representatives of the local occupation administration of the Russian Federation for the possibility of “unimpeded” business.

Based on the collected evidence, SBU officers detained one of the organizers of criminal activity in Kyiv. During the search of his apartment, more than 2 million hryvnia equivalents and documents with evidence of embezzlement were found.

Another organizer of the “scheme” was detained in Khmelnytskyi while trying to flee abroad.

As for the third figure, who is hiding in the temporarily occupied part of Luhansk region, comprehensive measures are underway to bring him to justice.

So far, the perpetrators have been notified of suspicion under Part 3 of Art. 28 and Part 4 of Art. 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (collaborative activity committed as part of an organized criminal group).

The investigation was conducted under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
