"One by one, the suspects in the "Odesa" case investigated by NABU return [to Ukraine]. Odesa Deputy Mayor Pavlo Vuhelman (the right one on the picture), was detained at Boryspil airport. He arrived from Israel (flight from Tel Aviv)," she said adding that similar to Trukhanov, Vuhelman was detained by the border guards to be handed over to the members of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau for them to bring indictment against him.
Odesa Mayor Hennadii Trukhanov was detained at the same airport earlier today.
In autumn 2017, NABU twice raided the premises of the Odesa City Council, the mayor’s office and home under probe into road renovation in Odesa on inflated prices and fraud involving assets of the local municipal airport. Trukhanov then said that it was not his apartment but his ex-wife’s that the NABU detectives searched. He also said that several reports on him having citizenships of other countries rather than Ukraine, including the Russian one were fake news.
On Feb. 13, 2018, detectives of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) brought embezzlement charges in absentia against Trukhanov and three other officials of the mayor's office.
