SBU exposes multimillion embezzlement during housing construction for servicemen
The SBU officers together with the Military Prosecutor’s Office exposed a mechanism of multimillion embezzlement of budget funds allocated to the MoD for housing construction for the servicemen and participants of the antiterrorist operation in Kamianske, Dnipropetrovsk Region.
Two private companies won the tender on housing construction for the servicemen and received more than 20 million UAH last year. The SBU officers found out that the criminals instead of constructing a new apartment building had bought an old unfinished construction project, where they had given the apartments to the military personnel. Expert examination determined that the housing doesn’t correspond to the national construction standards and real value of those apartments is several times less.
During the searches at the arrested individuals’ offices, cars and homes the law enforcers seized 10 thousand USD and documents confirming the fact of the illegal scheme.
Criminal case under part 3 article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine was initiated.
Operative and search actions in order to bring all the people involved in that illegal activity are being taken. The amount of state loss is being identified.
