National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) opened the case against Kyiv major Vitaly Klitschko and two of his deputies, regarding potential state treason and embezzlement.
This was stated in the NABU’s reply to RBK-Ukraine’s request.
"National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine has complied with the decision of the Supreme Anticorruption Court and recorded the relevant information into the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations," the response informs.
The case is relating to the possible misappropriation of funds by Klitschko during the reconstruction of Shuliavskyi Bridge. MPs of Kiyv City Council stated about Bureau's inaction during the opening of the case against the Mayor based on the MPs application that Vitaly Klitschko among the other officials of the Kiyv City Council used the City's funds in overestimated amounts.
