On Nov. 18, 2022, NABU and SAPO obtained the extradition of the general director of a private enterprise, suspected of involvement in the embezzlement of UAH 6.5 million from Derzhinformiust SE. She had been wanted for almost five years, when competent authorities detained her in Germany this late May. The High Anti-Corruption Court has remanded her into custody with an alternative of UAH 496,200 bail.

The investigation revealed that in November 2013, the former General Director of the Derzhinformiust SE signed a contract with a company under his control for the supply of computer software TrueConfserver and accompanying documentation. The first contract provided for an inflated cost, while the following contract did not provide for the supply of goods at all. Such actions caused UAH 6.5 million losses to the Derzhinformiust SE.

The investigation into the other participants in the crime has been completed, the case is pending in court.


According to Article 62 of the Constitution of Ukraine, a person is considered non-guilty in the commission of a crime and cannot be subject to criminal punishment until he or she is found guilty by court.
