Ukraine's MP Yaroslav Dubnevych

MP from For Future parliamentary group Yaroslav Dubnevych has been notified of suspicion beyond the session hall. Dubnevych himself told that to the press on October 31.

"They handed me the suspicion note. Most of the bargaining that took place at PJSC Ukrzaliznytsia was open, and that was competitive bargaining. I have no control over the dealer companies that joined the process, it's just nonsense made up by the NABU. One of the dealer companies was the KRT corporation; it did not take any action in the tender procedures with Ukrzaliznytsia, it's just a dealer of railroad switch factory. I am the beneficiary of this company, according to the United Register [of the Pre-trial Investigations]. But having become an MP, I passed the management of my assets to other representatives. Currently, I have no influence on the company's actions", Dubnevych said.

The MP added that he was never summoned for an interview; Dubnevych described the situation as a political show.

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.
