The SBI’s First Deputy Director Olha Varchenko announced this on her Facebook page, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to Varchenko, law enforcement officers are investigating Kyiv city customs officials suspected of abusing their official positions.

"According to our information, they waved an airplane belonging to an airline through customs without properly inspecting it and failed to process the airplane in accordance with the relevant procedure," she wrote.
