As stated, the suspects are charged with evasion of taxes and duties, appropriation and embezzlement of property through abuse of office, acceptance of an offer, promise or receipt of undue profit by an official.
From March to October 2015, the executives of a number of companies, acting by prior conspiracy with officials of Ukrnafta PJSC, seized the property of the said PJSC (50 percent + one share of Ukrnafta is owned by Naftohaz Ukrainy oil and gas company) on a large scale.
According to investigators, Ukrnafta held a number of unfair auctions and sold oil and other products to company-winners at lower cost.
Later on, Ukrnafta concluded additional agreements with the said companies to defer payments for already delivered oil. The payment for the supplied products has not been made so far, causing massive losses to the state totaling 7.744 billion hryvnia.
