“During the investigation, we found three facts of embezzlement of state funds through abusing of powers by officials of the Vasylkiv City Council. They paid material support to some citizens groundless and then deliberately concealed official documents in order to make it impossible to uncover the fact of embezzlement,” Tsutskiridze said.
