As it was reported, on February 24, 2016, National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) detectives registered criminal proceeding under the article of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on interference in the work of public officials due to the fact that within the period of January 25 – February 1, 2016 Pasichnyk had illegal influence on Abromavičius to hold the post of Deputy Minister. On March 9, charges were pressed against Pasichnyk. In late April, the incitement was sent to the court.
