Court places Pavlovsky under house arrest

Kyiv's Solomiansky District Court has chosen a measure of restraint for Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Ihor Pavlovsky in the form of house arrest.

The respective decision was announced by Judge Vladlena Lazarenko on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

During the court session, Deputy Chief of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office Maksym Hryshchuk asked the court to choose the measure of restraint for Pavlovsky in the form of house arrest with the possibility of introducing UAH 75 million bail.

At the same time, lawyers asked the court that Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleh Hladkovsky introduce bail for Pavlovsky.

The deputy minister himself said that despite an increase in prices by the tender committee, the Defense Ministry's department of public procurement purchased the fuel at the lowest prices.

As reported, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office exposed a corruption scheme on the loss of over UAH 149 million in state funds during the purchase of fuel for the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. Deputy Defense Minister Pavlovsky and Director of the Department for Procurement and Supply of Material Resources of the Defense Ministry Volodymyr Hulevych were detained.

Subsequently, NABU handed a notice of suspicion in embezzling public funds to two more Defense Ministry officials. One of them is an employee of a unit at the Department of State Procurement and Supply of Material Resources and another is an employee of the Department of Internal Audit at the Defense Ministry.

They were declared suspects under Part 5, Article 191 (appropriation, embezzlement or seizure of property through abuse of office) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
