That’s according to the SBU press center, Ukrinform reports.
The inquiry found that the three Chernivtsi residents were behind the scheme, offering “clients” forged certificates stating a negative PCR test result, fake international vaccination certificates, and even sham contracts with foreign employers.
The group would expand their clientele through intermediaries among passenger carrier businesses.
The perpetrators would also offer certain services to foreign nationals: including forged PCR test results and insurance paperwork.
The scheme was bringing the suspects up to UAH 500,000 per month in unlawful profit, the SBU noted.
