Detectives of the Economic Security Bureau of Ukraine identified 9 enterprises under the control of a former deputy of the State Duma of the russian federation, a colonel of the russian Army, which were operating in the territory of Ukraine.
In particular, a company engaged in publishing activities and production of paper products was exposed in particularly large amounts of tax evasion. The investigation found out that officials evaded payment of income tax and land tax, which resulted in the actual non-payment of over UAH 132 million to the budget.
It was also found out that during 2019-2021, the employees of the company bought cars, non-residential premises, equipment, etc., which were owned by another company and were pledged to the bank, at discounted prices.
As part of the pre-trial investigation, the financial and economic activities of the said legal entity were investigated and it was established that one of the plants in Ukraine, for a long time, under the guise of returnable financial assistance, transferred funds to the benefit of the mentioned company in the total amount of more than UAH 129 million.
