Censor.NET reports citing the statement by Larysa Sarhan, the spokeswoman for Ukraine's prosecutor general.
"PGO is probing into the actions of the Odesa customs officials committed over the period between November 2015 and November 2016. The law enforcers suspect that the officials acting in conspiracy with the third parties could have been turning a blind eye to understated goods undergoing customs clearance. Accordingly, the amount of the collected customs dues was also cut. These criminal actions caused damage to the state worth 6.92 million hryvnia," she wrote.
"The investigation is conducted by the Major Crimes Department of the PGO's Main Investigation Directorate in conjunction with operatives of the SBU's Main Directorate for Combating Corruption and Organized Crime. More than 60 raids were simultaneously held in the territory of Kyiv, Odesa and Lviv regions as part of the pre-trial investigation," Sarhan said.
Spokeswoman for the prosecutor general stressed that "no search was conducted in Marushevska's apartment."
Odesa Customs former Head Yuliia Marushevska earlier reported that SBU and PGO operatives made an attempt to search her apartment.
"These are battle-equipped fighters who paid me a visit," - Marushevska showed armed men allegedly intending to search her apartment. VIDEO(0)
