"Attention. A provocation by the GPU. New charges against Korban are based on my statement. I have just learned that new criminal cases against Hennadii Korban are particularly based on my statement. This spring me and a group of MPs filed an appeal to the GPU concerning misuses in gas production. In particular, we reported on the activities of firms Gas Alliance ltd and Naftogaztreid ltd, owned by ex-Party of Regions member Oleksandr Onyshchenko-Kadyrov," Levus said.

These companies are known for issuing tax credits for fictitious sale operations with fictitious companies, he stressed.
"We are talking about a possible reduction of VAT liability measuring in tens of millions. The GPU did not react to the appeal at the time. Now it turns out that a criminal proceeding has been opened, which is used against Korban in a strange way. According to my information, nor Korban, neither the Privat Group have any relation to the described schemes. I believe that this situation is either a deliberate political and legal provocation, or another manifestation of the lack of professionalism of the Prosecutor General. I hope that the GPU will put its energy back on the track and we will soon see searches and arrests of the same Onyshchenko-Kadyrov, Moskalenko, and Shufrych, against whom my appeal was initially aimed", he added.
