According to the investigation, during 2018-2019, the management of one of the large construction companies developed tax evasion schemes during the works. Due to the actions of businessmen, the state budget received less than UAH 30 million.

Businessmen transferred part of the budget assets to the details of corporate counterparties registered to fictitious persons. Then the money was transferred in cash and appropriated by the organizers.

During the proceedings in the offices of the contractor in three regions of Ukraine, law enforcement officers received financial and accounting documents confirming the fictitious financial transactions, seals of domestic and foreign companies, with use of which the transaction was carried out. Cash in the amount of over UAH 17 million was also found.

The operation was conducted by the SBU Main Directorate of Counterntelligence Protection of State Economic Interests with the investigators of the SFS Large Taxpayers Office under the procedural supervision of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
