Deputy Chairman of Kyiv Regional Administration Ihor Liubko was detained for bribing.
Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov wrote this on his Facebook page.
“September 9, the officers of the National Police of Ukraine and the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine detained Deputy Chairman of Kyiv Regional Administration Ihor Liubko, who through the mediator – head of healthcare department of Kyiv Regional Administration Yuri Pudenko – demanded and received a UAH 200,000 bribe from his subordinate for an unhampered transfer of her to another public agency,” he wrote.
The Minister added that a month ago Liubko jointly with governor Melnychuk received unconfirmed information that the head of the agricultural department of the administration had paid UAH 15 million as compensation under a budget-funded program to farmers. “They believed that this sum could not be paid without a kickback and they demanded a part of the sum that allegedly the head of the department received and they threatened to fire her,” the minister said.
