The case of Trukhanov will be considered by the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court.

“The city head did not mention in the declaration the property and income of his wife. Particularly, the flat in Odesa, parking slots, car and profit participation rights, and so on. The total value of the undeclared property reaches almost 16.3 million hryvnias ($588,246),” the message said.

Currently, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine considers two cases against Trukhanov – about the declaration of false information for 2015-2016 and appropriation of 92 million hryvnias ($3.3 million) in the result of the scheme for purchase of plant building.
