Investigators have found no evidence that confirms the statements of the former head of the State Financial Inspectorate of Ukraine Mykola Hordiyenko alleging that UAH 8 billion had been embezzled by members of Arseniy Yatseniuk’s government, First Deputy Prosecutor General Volodymyr Huzyr has said.
“The figure of nearly UAH 8 billion has not been confirmed yet. Forensic audits are being held to probe these allegations, but experts currently do not fully agree with the amount previously announced by the auditors,” Huzyr said while speaking during an hour of questions to the government in the Verkhovna Rada on Friday.
He also dismissed the statements made by the head of the working group investigating the allegations, Boryslav Bereza, that the prosecutor’s office is preventing the working group from performing its duties.
