The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine conducts searches in Ukrzaliznytsia related to purchases for the needs of the industry. As reported in the press service of the UZ, law enforcement officers were given access to the home and work premises of the company's employees, which are provided for by the court order as part of the investigation related to the activities of the "Production Support Center" branch of JSC "Ukrzaliznytsia".
The head of the board of the University of Applied Sciences Yevhen Lyashchenko commented on the situation and noted that he had provided all the explanations.
"...Among my primary tasks as the head of Ukrzaliznytsia is overcoming corruption schemes. Today, I personally provided all clarifications to NABU regarding possible procurement abuses. Although procurement audits are carried out for the period when they were not part of my area of responsibility. We are open to any inspections, ready to facilitate investigative actions and support a transparent and impartial investigation of all possible abuses in the company," said Lyashchenko.
As reported, last week NABU and SAP detained one of the deputy heads of the procurement department of Ukrzaliznytsia and searched the company. He is suspected of receiving improper benefits for facilitating the conclusion of contracts with "necessary suppliers" for the needs of the railway. For his services, he received a new Toyota Camry car, purchased at a car dealership for UAH 1.55 million.
