The case is relating to the possible misappropriation of funds by Klitschko during the reconstruction of Shuliavskyi Bridge. MPs of Kiyv City Council stated about Bureau's inaction during the opening of the case against the Mayor based on the MPs application that Vitaly Klitschko among the other officials of the Kiyv City Council used the City's funds in overestimated amounts. 

As we reported earlier, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved Vitaly Klitschko's dismissal as the Chairman of the Kyiv City State Administration. Oleksiy Honcharuk stated this during the briefing on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel. 

"We applied to the President's Office concerning the dismissal of Klitschko," he said.
