The Security Service of Ukraine has exposed a corruption scheme for the appropriation of more than $450 thousand of the utility company “Odesa International Airport” during repairs on the site. The U Security Service of Ukraine website reports.
Special services operatives established that the firms were registered as subcontractors and acts of acceptance and transfer of works and services that were not actually performed were signed with them.
Thus, the attackers misappropriated more than $450 thousand in jobs with a total budget of $1.6 million. According to relevant experts, poorly performed work could pose a threat to the life and health of airport passengers. Thanks to the intervention of the Main Directorate of Counterintelligence Protection of State Interests in the Sphere of Economic Security, this risk is excluded.
During searches at the airport and in office premises, law enforcement officers seized seals, documents and electronic media containing information about illegal financial transactions
As we reported earlier, late evening, November 21, a Turkish Airlines Boeing 737 made an emergency landing at Odesa International Airport, landing on its belly.
