Lawyers of Ihor Pavlovsky, Ukraine’s deputy minister of defense protest against their client’s home detention; that was the restriction measure selected by the court, as the authority considers the high-profile embezzlement-related case. Rostyslav Kravets, one of the lawyers’ team, reported that as quoted by Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

‘This restriction measure chosen by the court has no grounds, and there’s no need in choosing such measure, taking into account the charges filed against my protégée,’ he said, adding that Kyiv Appeal Court will consider their appeal either on October 20 or October 23.   

As 112 International reported, four officials working for the Ministry got busted and were accused of embezzling state funds while buying fuel for the army in 2016. National Anti-Corruption Bureau and Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office found out that Ministry of Defense used a corrupt scheme when contracting fuel and embezzled state funds for the amount of over 5,7 million USD.
