The Court considered the appeal of the defense against the decision of the Pechersk district court of Kyiv dated January 3, 2017, according to which the preventive measure in the form of arrest was taken against Kurchenko.
The judges upheld the definition of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv and did not satisfy the appeal filed by Kurchenko’s defense.
Fugitive ex-Minister of Revenue and Duties of Ukraine Oleksandr Klymenko and businessman Serhiy Kurchenko caused $ 7.43 billion losses to Ukraine. Serhiy Kurchenko left for Russia after Euromaidan events. In April 2014 Kurchenko was put on the international wanted list.
