The Security Service of Ukraine announced the suspicion of the head of one of the departments of the Odesa RSA. In early 2018, she could steal state budget funds through a utility, police say. Investigators were able to establish this fact in January this year. According to preliminary data, the persons involved in the corruption case have appropriated almost UAH 1.6 million when purchasing goods for the needs of the department.

According to the pre-trial investigation, the official is also involved in taking over the funds provided for remuneration of the employees of the institution. To implement the scheme, the defendants used bogus employment.

The SBU representatives informed the person of suspicion of the second part of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. This means that the head of the department may be involved in the misappropriation, misappropriation, or misappropriation of property. The sanction of the article provides for a sentence of imprisonment for a term up to five years or imprisonment for the same term with deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions for up to three years.

Investigation is now underway to establish all the circumstances of the offense and to prosecute others involved in the equipment.
