The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) proved the agreement between Public Joint-Stock Company (PJSC) Azot and PJSC Cherkasyoblenergo invalid. Due to this agreement , the State suffered losses of more than 57 million UAH. On August 3, 2017, the Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine supported corresponding NABU`s claim in full amount, leaving unchanged the decisions of trial court and appellate court.
The law “On the 2016 State Budget of Ukraine” allocated 486,6 million UAH for the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine operation, including 114 million for capital expenses. According to the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk, if it wasn't for the support of the International Monetary Fund, the amounts would have been smaller.
