The security service collected the evidence base and reported the suspicion of large-scale corruption to the deputy mayor of Chernihiv for the activities of the council’s executive bodies.

Already in July, the equipment was purchased at a cost that was twice the market price. At the same time, losses to the state reached more than UAH 30 million.

This amount was confirmed by forensic and economic forensic examinations initiated by the Security Service and conducted by the Kyiv Research Institute of Forensic Examinations.

To implement the equipment, the person involved “coordinated” his criminal actions with the management of the supplier company.

On the basis of the collected evidence, the investigators of the Security Service informed the official about the suspicion of Part 2 of Art. 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (abuse of power or official position).

Currently, he has been remanded in custody, with the alternative of bail in the amount of UAH 32 million.

An investigation is ongoing to establish all the circumstances of the crime. The perpetrator faces up to 6 years in prison.
