"I have instructed the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to verify information spread by the media as for legality of funds MP Leshchenko had spent to purchase apartment in Kyiv. If the elements of the crime are established all the anti-corruption agencies will take all the measures provided by the law to bring the perpetrators to justice," Kholodnytskyi said.
Earlier, blogger Andrii Dzyndzia wrote on Facebook that People's Deputy Serhii Leshchenko had purchased 200-square meter apartment worth 7.5 million hryvnia (about $300,000) on Ivana Franka Street in downtown Kyiv. In turn, Serhii Leshchenko confirmed that he indeed purchased the apartment with total area of almost 200 square meters on Ivana Franka Street in downtown Kyiv. The lawmaker noted that he borrowed half of the amount necessary for the purchase of the property from founder of Ukrainska Pravda news outlet Olena Prytula. The rest of the amount was partially his personal and his girlfriend's savings.
