Colonel Vladislav Abdula, head of the SBU press center in Kharkiv region, informed an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Law enforcement officers arrested a 42-year-old official after he received UAH 40,000 bribe from a businessman. It was established that he regularly demanded money from businessmen for not conducting audits of their activities and charging no penalties for violations revealed," Abdula said.
