Criminal proceeding was initiated today, May 26. Law enforcement officers are verifying information regarding overpricing of rolling stock, preliminarily by $7 million. 

It is noted that the board of Ukrainian Railways planned to purchase 5 thousand 890 high sided wagons for about $183 million excluding VAT. Internal Ministry researched the market and claimed that Ukrzaliznytsia signed protocol costing approval overpricing each wagon by about $2.9 thousand.
