Six persons are suspected of causing UAH 196.8 million damages to the State due to illegal gas production permit

On July 31, 2020, the Detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) under the procedural guidance of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor`s Office (SAPO) gave notices of suspicion to six persons. They organized a scheme under which Arkona Gas-Energy LLC received the right to use the subsoil of the Svistunkivsko-Chervonolutsky gas condensate field (located in Poltava Region) at an artificially low cost. As a result, the State lost UAH 196.8 million, which the LLC had to pay for the obtaining of a special subsoil use permit.
