Several fully operational ambulance cars that appeared to be stolen were discovered by the SBU, Ukraine’s Security Service. The vehicles were found inside an abandoned factory located in Toretsk, Donetsk region.
It turned out that some of the cars were actually the gift from President Poroshenko; in spring this year, they were supposed to reach the hospitals in the cities across Donetsk region.
Four vehicles were seized from the abandoned facility and sent to a local hospital in Toretsk. Thus, the Security Service prevented financial damage to the state treasury in the amount of USD 100,000. The investigation into the incident is underway.
