As reported by Censor.NET citing military prosecutor's office press service, an SBU major, while staying in the city of Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region in June-July 2014, promised to help a citizen in furthering a purchase of an apartment at a public auction. However, the malefactor was not going to render any assistance in this matter. By deceit and abuse of trust, he asked and received from the victim cash amounting to UAH 100,000 (approx. $7,700 as of currency rate of that period).
The criminal offence under part 2, article 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine has been entered into the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations.
