Possible damage of UAH 37 million in construction of Shyrokyi Lan firing ground in Mykolaiv oblast.
This is the wrongdoing of which the NABU and the SAPO accuse 5 individuals. They are charged on the counts of Article 191, part 5 (misappropriation or embezzlement of property in especially large amounts) and Article 366, part 1 (forgery in official capacity).
The NABU speaks about:
- Head of Main Housing Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine*;
- Head of Military Facilities Construction, Reconstruction and Renovation Directorate of the Main Housing Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine*;
- Head of the Technical Oversight Department of the Main Housing Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine*;
- beneficiary of the TOV;
- director of the TOV.
On Monday, August 3, the High Anti-Corruption Court will choose interim pre-trial measures for them.
According to Slovo i Dilo journalist Oleh Novikov, who refers to his sources, the NABU and the SAPO will ask for custody for former Head of Main Housing Directorate Oleh Halushko, with the option of bail set at UAH 20 million;
for Head of Construction Department Serhii Chaharnyi — custody or bail at UAH 3.5 million,
and for former Head of Technical Oversight Department Viktor Antoshchuk — custody or bail at UAH 5 million.
The journalist has also found out that law enforcement agencies will ask the High Anti-Corruption Court to take into custody the beneficiary of Rist company (currently TOV Contate) Roman Balykiv with the option of bail at UAH 35 million, and company CEO Kostiantyn Chepusov — at UAH 30 million.
According to the SAPO, even though the firing ground was basically not prepared at all, Armed Forces officials still “facilitated” the transfer of funds to the company’s accounts.
The amount of damage inflicted to the national budget has been proven by a conclusion of the State Audit Service and expert reviews.
