Martynenko was not served an indictment. He was taken to the NABU office, with the lawyer following him.

As reported, the NABU is investigating the acceptance by representatives of the Ukrainian government of 30 million francs in bribe in 2009-2015 for ensuring the purchase of equipment by Ukraine's state-owned energy producer Enerhoatom from the Czech company Skoda JS. In December 2015, Martynenko, one of the then leaders of the People's Front faction, quit the parliament following the launch of a probe against him. Even earlier, Martynenko headed the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Fuel and Energy Complex, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety.
