"Speaking about the corruption scandal around Nowak's figure in Poland, it was caused by a watch worth $3,500. And he could finally defend his honest name in court!" Omelian stressed.

"Former Ukravtodor top officials have estates, luxury cars and so on. None of them is in jail, none of them has lost the job over a scandal. Nowak's Polish scandal ended in his resignation. Such an outcome seems hardly possible in the Ukrainian realities," he concluded.
