Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office suspects Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk in tax evasion; this was mentioned in the Pechersk district court’s recent finding.
According to UNN news agency, the respective case was initiated on July 4, 2017.
‘The court charged State Fiscal Service to check if the finance minister obeyed the taxation and currency law during the period from 1998 till 2016,’ the outlet says.
UNN added that, according to the data collected by Prosecutor General’s Office, Danylyuk (the leader of Centre for Implementation of Economic Reforms in 2010-2014) bought a 290 square meters-large house and a BMW X5. In 2014, he transferred almost USD 20,000 to one of his bank accounts. ‘However, according to his declaration of income, in 2010-2014, he made roughly 21,000 dollars,’ UNN wrote.
Oleksandr Danylyuk, the ex-deputy head of presidential administration of Ukraine, has been serving as finance minister since April 2016.
