Eksradnik The Office of the President stole almost 100 million

An organized group led by a former adviser to the Office of the President of Ukraine was discovered, which attracted 94.8 million UAH from the purchase of transformers for Ukrzaliznytsia.

This was reported by the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office ( SAP) and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU).

An organized group was created back in 2021 to control the funds of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC.

During June – December 2022, the organizer of the scheme, through controlled officials of Ukrzaliznytsia, ensured the election of a predetermined company as a supplier of power transformers.

“The supply of transformers was at an inflated cost. The letter “On threats to state security” was used as a basis for rejecting proposals from other procurement participants with more favorable price conditions. At the same time, the head of the OG deliberately ignored the citizenship of the controller of the company that “won” the tender, and his connections with the Russian Federation,” noted the SAPO.

Ex-rader detained Office of the President


It was established that the transformers themselves were purchased through a laying company from a manufacturer that was partially owned by legal entities from the Russian Federation, and were resold to UZ at twice the inflated price.

As a result, Ukrzaliznytsia suffered losses in the amount of UAH 94.8 million, which were taken by the participants in the crime. NABU noted that thanks to the actions of detectives and prosecutors, the court seized UAH 53 million in the bank accounts of the supplier company.

Currently, the leader, co-organizer and two members of the organized group have been detained.

    < li>In February, NABU and SAPO exposed a criminal group that embezzled more than 11 million UAH from Ukrzaliznytsia. Among the attackers are Ukrzaliznytsia officials and entrepreneurs. After the scheme was exposed, nine people received suspicion.
