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.
More than 20 million UAH was returned to the State budget according to the court decision of the Solomyansky District Court of Kyiv. The funds were confiscated as a result of the pre-trial investigation as of the facts of the abuse of the officials of the State Administration of Railway Transport of Ukraine (now PJSC “Ukrzaliznytsia”). One of the suspects provided the Detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) with valuable data and signed plea bargain agreement which was followed by the court decision. According to the decision, the funds were confiscated in the amount that fully compensates the damage caused by the corruption scheme to the State Enterprise (SE).
