The state-run railroad company ‘Ukrzaliznytsia’ evaded paying taxes on the total sum of roughly USD 50 million. Yevhen Bambizov, the representative of the State Fiscal Service, reported this as quoted by his office at Facebook.
‘We’ve just finished checking Ukrzaliznytsia, and we found out that the company evaded taxes on the sum of totally 1.5 billion UAH (almost 50 million U.S. dollars). Fictional transactions on the sum of 7.5 mln dollars took place. Besides, one of the affiliates of the company evaded taxes on the sum of USD 13.5 thousand’, Bambizov said.
Previously, the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Security Service and the National Police conducted 20 simultaneous searches, all of them related to corruption acts presumably committed by Ukrzaliznytsia and its affiliates.
