PGO Checking Involvement Of Danyliuk, Ministry Of Finance's High Officials In Yanukovych's Crimes

The Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) checks involvement of Minister of Finance Oleksandr Danyliuk, Deputy Minister Yurii Butsa and State Secretary Yevhen Kapinus in the crimes committed under former President Viktor Yanukovych.

This is in a statement issued by the Shevchenkivskyi District Court of Kyiv on October 27, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the report, the financial fraud is estimated at UAH 18 billion.

On July 2, 2010, Yanukovych signed a degree creating a Coordination Center on Implementation of Economic Reforms as an advisory body under the President.

Currently the PGO considers checking possible involvement of officials of the aforesaid advisory body into crimes committed by Yanukovych and his associates.

Minister of Finance Oleksandr Danyliuk in 2010-2015 was chairperson of the Coordination Center on Implementation of Economic Reforms under the Presidential Administration, while his current deputies Yurii Butsa, Serhii Marchenko and State Secretary Yevhen Kapinus were then staff-members at the center.

The PGO specified that it was looking into the activity of persons who later founded charities the Center of Reforms and the Bendukidze Free Market Center.

According to the State Register of Legal Entities and Entrepreneurs, founders of the Center of Reforms are Oleksandr Danyliuk, Yevhen Kapinus, Yurii Butsa, Yana Buhrymova, Nataliya Kyrychenko, Hanna Ruda and Oleksandr Sayenko.

Founders of the Bendukidze Free Market Center are Oleksandr Danyliuk, Yuliya Tychkovska, Volodymyr Fedorin and Mikheil Saakashvili.

On October 27, the court allowed the PGO to access documents of the OTP Bank in which the both organizations maintained their accounts.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on August 18, the Pecherskyi District Court of Kyiv allowed the PGO to access declarations of income filed by Danyliuk for 2015-2016 from the National Agency on Corruption Prevention.

In September it became known that the PGO closed a criminal proceeding into possible tax evasion of Danyliuk.

Despite this, in early November, the State Fiscal Service resumed financial check of Minister of Finance Oleksandr Danyliuk.
