As it was reported earlier, in April, the NABU searched the house of Vadym Kostyuchenko, the Vice President of Football Federation of Ukraine (FFU). The FFU is suspected of the corruption schemes, including the illegal use of the state funds. Besides, the plant of the federation on the production of the artificial grass was searched as well as the partakers of the criminal case investigated by the NABU since June 2018.
