A detectives of the Economic Security Bureau of Ukraine reported the suspicion to the chief accountant of Ukrtatnafta as part of the investigation into the criminal proceedings on the embezzlement of UAH 40 billion by the former management of PJSC Ukrnafta and PJSC Ukrtatnafta.
The figure was hiding in the Uzhhorod district in Zakarpattya , where she was found by the Security Service of Ukraine.
It was established that PJSC "Ukrtatnafta" produced and sold fuel through the gas station network without paying excise tax, although such tax was included in the price for consumers. Therefore, the excise tax arrears for this episode amounts to UAH 605 million.
Law enforcement officers continue active investigative actions, search for withdrawn assets of "Ukrnafta" and "Ukrtatnafta" and establish all the circumstances of the illegal activities of the former managers of these companies.
In particular, in Dnipro, a room where the hidden accounting of one of the companies was kept was exposed. Documents of related enterprises, seals, etc. were also found.
We will remind you that earlier the ESBU and the SSU exposed large-scale embezzlement schemes of UAH 40 billion by the former management of Ukrnafta and Ukrtatnafta. Suspicion was reported to Acting the first deputy chairman of the board of the oil refining company. It was established that illegal mechanisms were combined with tax evasion and legalization of funds obtained through criminal means.
As part of the criminal proceedings, 10 episodes of criminal activity are documented. In particular, this is the transfer of large batches of oil products to affiliated companies, tax evasion by them, the creation of bad debts of oil refineries and oil production plants, which led to the depreciation and reduction of the value of their assets.
According to the investigation, such criminal activity was carried out in the interests of the actual owners and beneficiaries of the companies.
Pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings on the grounds of a criminal offense provided for in Part 3 of Art. 212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (deliberate evasion of the payment of value-added tax, duties, which led to the actual non-payment of funds to the state budget in particularly large amounts) is carried out by detectives of the Economic Security Bureau of Ukraine under the procedural guidance of prosecutors of the Prosecutor General's Office.
