On Tuesday, April 23, NABU reported suspicion of Nikolai Solsky of organizing a scheme for the acquisition of state lands with an area of ​​​​about 2 .5 thousand hectares worth UAH 291 million under the pretext of allocating plots to ATO veterans.

According to the investigation, in 2017-2021, Solsky, as the owner of a number of agricultural companies, in conspiracy with the head of the State Geocadastre of Ukraine and the curators of the State Geocadastre bodies, decided to take possession of the land that was in use by two state-owned enterprises in the Sumy region.
