Earlier, we reported that the SBI (Ukraine's State Bureau of Investigations) has completed the pre-trial investigation against the officer of the military police of Ukraine Armed Forces. It appears that the official is suspected of double-dealing with other servicemen's work trips, as they cooperated with the UN peacekeepers. The press office of the SBI reported this on Thursday, August 20.
In July 2019-March 2020, the serviceman pocketed some USD 16,000, as he was responsible for issues related to work trips of Ukrainian servicemen within the UN peacekeeping contingent in the Democratic Republic of Congo. "Besides, he urged a citizen to give a bribe to the officials of the General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces", SBI stated.
