"According to the materials of the criminal proceeding, it was established that no money had been withdrawn from these accounts to pay taxes, fees, and other mandatory payments, as well as wages," the statement said.
It is noted that in the framework of the said criminal proceeding, the company’s financial director, chief accountant in November 2021 was charged with forgery in office and intentional tax evasion in especially large amounts. According to the inquiry, the suspect deliberately filed false information in the declaration of rent for subsoil use, thus evading rent payment to the budget in the amount of more than UAH 2.24 billion. The suspect’s criminal actions and the corresponding amount of damage to the budget have been confirmed by the conclusions of a comprehensive forensic examination.
It is emphasized that the motion for the arrest of the company's accounts was filed to compensate for the damage inflicted on Ukraine’s budget and to ensure special confiscation.
All proceedings are run exclusively within the legal framework, prosecutors said, adding they consistently protect the interests of investors, while their priority is to protect the law.
