The actions of an official are qualified under Part 5 Article 191 and Part 1 Article 366 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
According to the investigation, in November 2015, the former Acting Director of the RME “Mykolaivoblteploenergo” concluded 138 contracts for the installation of heat metering devices in residential buildings in Mykolaiv with the LLC “Company Ukrenergoservice”.
