Ukraine's MP Yaroslav Dubnevych
The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court allowed MP Yaroslav Dubnevych to be released on UAH 100 million (4 mln USD) bail, the press service of the court reported.

Thus, the court refused to arrest the MP. But the bail must be paid within 5 days.

The court also ordered Dubnevich to give away his foreign passports and wear an electronic bracelet for movement control.

On November 1, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court began to select a measure of restraint for MP Yaroslav Dubnevych.

As it was reported earlier, NABU finished the investigation on embezzlement of 3.7 million dollars from Ukrzaliznytsya. According to the report, suspects during December 2015 - March 2017 arranged the purchase of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsya of articulated products overpriced with the involvement of controlled intermediary companies and thus seized the funds of the branch Center for production of PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia in the amount about of 3.7 million dollars. NABU detectives launched the investigation in June 2017.

On October 17, Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka submitted a petition to the Verkhovna Rada for permission of criminal prosecution of MP Yaroslav Dubnevych.

It is noted that while serving as chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Transport, Dubnevych was aware of Ukrzaliznytsia's financial state, including its needs in public procurement, and had an influence on the founders and officials of the PJSC. Investigators believe that the funds were received by legal entities controlled by people's deputy and his accomplices because of a concerted overestimation of the price during the sale of track switching equipment to the affiliate. However, according to the Prosecutor General's Office, the MP repeatedly used his official position in the interests of people related to him.
