"The detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine have notified three people about the suspicion in the appropriation of the property of the main directorate of the National Guard for UAH 81.64 million. The issue concerns the commander of the National Guard of Ukraine, the general director of a construction company and an appraiser," the statement reads.
According to the NABU, the actions of the former National Guard commander and the general director of the construction company are qualified under Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (appropriation, embezzlement or seizure of property through abuse of office), and those of the appraiser under Part 5 of Article 27, Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (complicity in committing a crime).
The investigation established that in the 2000s, the main directorate of interior troops of the Interior Ministry, which was subsequently reorganized into the main directorate of the National Guard of Ukraine, and the construction company entered into an agreement on building a residential complex with parking lots and non-residential premises in the territory of a former military unit. In exchange for a land plot with an area of about one hectare in the center of Kyiv, the National Guard had to receive 50 apartments and 30 parking spaces in the residential complex.
"However, later, in 2016-2017, the parties signed additional agreements according to which the National Guard refused from these apartments and parking spaces in Pechersk in exchange for 65 apartments in a house that the same construction company was building on the outskirts of Kyiv (near the Chervony Khutir metro station). The cost of these apartments, as established by the examination conducted as part of a pretrial investigation, is UAH 81,635,448 lower than the estimated cost of apartments that the National Guard had to receive at the start of the agreements," the NABU said.
The issue of selecting measures of restraint for the suspects is being decided.
NABU detectives have investigated these facts since December 2017 on the basis of materials provided by investigative journalists of the Bihus.info project, the NABU added.
NABU detectives detained Allerov on May 14.
