The press service of the prosecutor’s office of the city of Kyiv provided information that the Kyiv local prosecutor’s Office No. 3 reported suspicion to the former director of the contractor in seizing budget funds allocated for major repairs of elements of improvement of the Rusanivsky Canal.
According to the investigation materials, in 2018, a contract was entered into an agreement with the specified enterprise for major repairs of elements of improvement of the Rusanivsky Canal along Florentsii street.
However, in order to conceal the fact of improper performance of work and subsequent seizure of funds allocated for the repair of the canal, the former director of the contractor entered false information about the volume of work carried out in official documents, thus seizing almost 1 million hryvnias ($37 000) from the capital’s budget.
The actions of the ex-head of the contractor organization are qualified under Part 5 of Article 191, part 2 of Article 366 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings continues, the report says.
