According to the materials of the SBI, the Pechersky District Court of Kyiv found the current People's Deputy of Ukraine guilty of an administrative offense related to the corruption.

It should be reminded that on November 8th, 2023, the employees of the National Agency on Corruption Prevention, based on the materials of the SBI, handed the protocol on administrative offense related to the corruption to the People's Deputy of Ukraine.

According to the materials of the investigation of the Bureau, it was established that in August and October 2023 the People's Deputy sent a deputy's requests to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the SBI, in which issues of his private interest were raised.

In particular, in his requests, he was interested in considering the issue of issuing him permission to travel abroad, which is the subject of a criminal case where the People's Deputy acts as a defendant. He also tried to put pressure on the investigation, demanding to initiate inspections of the leadership of law enforcement agencies investigating criminal proceedings in which the People's Deputy acts as a suspect.

By his actions, the defendant violated the requirements of Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Article 28 of the Law of Ukraine "On Prevention of Corruption" (not to commit and not to make decisions in conditions of a real conflict of interest), for which administrative responsibility  is provided under Part 2 of Article 172-7 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses (Violation of the requirements for the prevention and settlement of conflicts of interest).

After the court decision comes into force, the person involved will be included in the Unified State Register of Persons who have committed corruption or corruption-related offenses.

It should be reminded that in January 2024, the employees of the SBI submitted to the court proceedings against this People's Deputy on suspicion of official forgery in order to travel abroad.

The investigation into the scheme of illegal departure of men of conscription age abroad continues. The above-mentioned People's Deputy was informed about the suspicion of organizing an illegal border crossing by another person.

In addition, in November 2023, the SBI informed him and other members of the criminal organization of suspicion of high treason. Then the SBI employees, together with the Security Service of Ukraine, exposed a criminal organization that included current and former People's Deputies, an assistant to one of them, as well as a former prosecutor. It was found that on order from the russian special services, they organized measures to discredit the image of Ukraine in the international arena to worsen diplomatic relations with the United States and complicate Ukraine's accession to the European Union and NATO.
