The case of Odesa mayor Gennadiy Trukhanov is ready to be transferred to court. This is the purchase by the city council the plant “Krajan” from the company “Development Elite” at a price of 185 million hryvnias, Hromadske reports.
According to the press service of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, on September 28-October 3, 2018 prosecutors of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office presented the indictment made by the detectives of NABU. 8 people were suspected of seizing funds from the local budget of Odesa during the acquisition of the “Krajan” buildings.
As established by the investigation, Trukhanov, in the period from July to December 2016, together with other officials of the municipality and a private company, seized the funds of the local budget of the city of Odesa in the amount of 185 million USD under the guise of buying a building of the bankrupt “Krajan” plant at a known overestimated cost.
“The paid-up funds were probably planned to be legalized through an enterprise with signs of fictitiousness, the founder and leader of which, as established by the investigation, are currently living in the uncontrolled territory of the Luhansk region,” the NABU reported.
