The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has placed former Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetsky on the wanted list.

The former mayor is wanted by SBU as a person hiding from the prosecutor's office. The date of his disappearance is July 24, 2017, while the place of disappearance is not indicated.

The reason for Chernovetsky's detention is a respective court ruling. The former mayor is suspected of committing a crime envisaged in Part 2, Article 364 (abuse of power or office) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

Earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office said that Chernovetsky was a suspect. According to investigators, he caused about UAH 250 million worth of damage to Kyiv by "transferring particularly valuable land for rent for the construction of the so-called helicopter landing site on the Parkova Road in Kyiv."

Chernovetsky served as Kyiv city mayor from 2006 to 2012. According to the latest information, he currently stays in Georgia.
