The Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau Artem Sytnyk asks not to consider the recent events between the officers of the NABU and the General Prosecutor’s Office as an interagency war. According to him, both bodies must "jointly fight corruption, which appears to be the main evil that prevents Ukraine from development." Besides the relations between the law enforcement bodies, Artem Sytnyk commented on a number of high-profile criminal cases.
The detectives of the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine are conducting a number of searches in different locations of Kyiv and Kyiv region, in particular in the offices of firms associated with criminal schemes in selling natural gas.
The searches were carried out on the basis of judicial warrants as part of the pre-trial investigation in criminal proceeding on charges of position abuse in selling natural gas mined in collaboration with the UkrGasVydobuvannya PJSC.
