The State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) has served five senior officials of the Ministry of Defense with notification of suspicion of purchasing low-quality Corsair bulletproof vests.

The State Bureau of Investigation’s Director Roman Truba announced this at a news briefing, the Ukrainian News Agency reports.

In particular, the head and deputy heads of the Ministry of Defense’s main department and heads of departments were served with notifications of suspicion.

It has been established that the Ministry of Defense purchased 20,000 bulletproof vests worth UAH 176 million, but 7,000 bulletproof vests were found to be defective.

The resulting losses amounted to UAH 61 million.
