The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine allowed Volodymyr Yatsenko, a former First Deputy Chairman of the Board of PrivatBank, suspected of embezzling property, to get out on 1.8 million dollars bail. This was announced by spokeswoman of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court Olesya Chemerys, as Ukrainian Pravda reports.
"Payment was made for the ex-Deputy Chairman of the Board of a large bank, who was taken into custody the day before - detention with an alternative to bail. The bail was paid in full, as defined in the resolution," Chemerys said.
The spokeswoman also said that the bail was paid by the company, but the court could not disclose its name.
In December 2020, Prosecutor General Iryna Venedyktova said that the investigation into the PrivatBank case had begun to move in the "right direction." Earlier in May, NABU Director Artem Sytnyk said that the first suspicions in the case of nationalization are due to be announced.
Two months later, on February 22, a plane with the former Deputy Chairman of the Board of PrivatBank boarded at Boryspil International Airport.
The Prosecutor General agreed to report a suspicion of a crime. It is noted that the ex-official planned to leave Ukraine on a private plane in the direction of Vienna, taking off from the Dnipro. Thanks to the efforts of the head of the group of detectives and the director of NABU, who appealed to the State Aviation Service, the plane landed at Boryspil Airport, where urgent investigative actions were launched.
